June 5, 2019


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that at the end of 2016, 1.1 million people in the United States were living with HIV. A lot of these people have been living with HIV for many years.

Treatment with HIV medicines (called antiretroviral therapy or ART) has transformed HIV from a fatal disease into a manageable chronic condition. Daily ART helps people with HIV live longer, healthier lives and reduces the risk of HIV transmission.

June 5 is a day set aside each year to honor long-term survivors of HIV and to raise awareness of their needs, issues, and journeys. To learn more, browse the AIDSinfo HIV Long-Term Survivors Day webpage.
