The Unrecognizable Success
When HIV was first reported in human beings quarter a century ago, there was no treament for it. In the early 80s it was still that horrible virus which would kill anyone who would get it. Years passed and new treatments started evolving, and patients started living much longer and having better qualities of life.
The shocking fact is that if someone is now diagnosed with HIV, his/her life expectancy is unchanged given that he has good follow-up with physicians.
Although there's still no cure or vaccination for HIV, the advances in the treatment of its carriers over this relatively short period of time is just amazing.
Although scientists have been winning one battle after another in fighting HIV, and although they have saved so many lives, we still see many people complaining of how "all the research done on HIV" has been infertile.
Please don't be one of those.
