What Is HIV Treatment?

HIV treatment also known as antiretroviral therapy (ART), is a combination of medications designed to control the replication of the virus in the body. The primary goal of HIV treatment is to achieve and maintain an undetectable viral load, which means that the amount of HIV in the bloodstream is so low that it cannot be detected through standard blood tests. This not only preserves the individual’s health but also greatly reduces the risk of transmitting the virus to others.
