Studies show that people living with HIV may be more likely than the general population to develop psychological disorders like depression or anxiety (but we still need more hard data).

Help us out. Tell us what’s going on in your mind. http://ow.ly/vZBOZ

One more reason to start HIV treatment ASAP: Studies show starting ARVs during the acute phase of an infection can drastically reduce gut damage and inflammation. This could protect you against heart disease and cognitive decline down the line. http://ow.ly/vVArC

Now that the new health law requires Medicaid and Medicare to cover treatment for substance abuse, will the way our medical system treats addicts be able to keep up?

If countries without universal ARV access followed this new theory, it would mean injection drug users and female sex workers would be treated before all other at-risk groups.

Was the PARTNER study wrong? Is transmission still possible with an undetectable viral load?
