Spoken word artist Michael "Miss Mikey" Lamb shares his saga of fighting for health coverage -- and why people fall through the cracks.
We recently retired our My Health Tracker service, which had allowed people to confidentially keep a log of every lab test result they received and every start, stop, or change they made to their HIV medications.
"If you educate yourself, you can protect yourself," says Thelma Garcia, the HIV service director of East Los Angeles Women's Center. "Helping different women in my community is the passion that keeps me going."
There is real racism in our health care system, Kenyon Farrow writes -- and we need more black people to work with us to transform systems, not believe in false prophets.
I read recently that, even though longevity is increasing for HIV+ people, people who begin treatment with a low CD4 count will probably live a shorter period of time. Do you feel this is true?
I was diagnosed with HIV seven years ago with a CD4 of 150 and viral load of 3,000. I started treatment and today I have an undetectable viral load and CD4 of 840. Is my evolution until today good?
