HIV/AIDS Awareness Days

HIV Long-Term Survivors Day

June 5, 2018

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that at the end of 2015, 1.1 million people in the United States were living with HIV. Many of these Americans are HIV long-term survivors.

Treatment with HIV medicines (called antiretroviral therapy or ART) has transformed HIV from a fatal disease to a manageable chronic condition. ART helps HIV long-term survivors live long, productive lives with HIV.

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