World AIDS Day 2017: Antiretroviral therapy centres in India
- Antiretroviral Therapy slows down the multiplication of the HIV virus
- The therapy involves a combination of ART medicines given to the patient
- Combination of three medicines is more effective than monotherapy
HIV has no cure, once a person gets infected with the virus, he or she continues to be HIV positive for life. But there is one thing you can do to slow down the multiplication of the HIV virus in your body, the Antiretroviral Therapy (ART).
The therapy involves a combination of antiretroviral medicines which are given to the patient to lower the rate of multiplication of the virus. A combination of three medicines turns out to be more effective than just one medicine (monotherapy) for HIV treatment.
