What is ART?
ART stands for antiretroviral treatment. It is also called combination therapy or HIV treatment.
What are ARVs?
HIV drugs are called antiretrovirals (ARVs) because HIV is a type of virus called a retrovirus.
ART nearly always includes at least three active drugs.
Some pills contain more than one drug and some single pills contain a complete combination.
Seeing people get better on combination therapy is without a doubt the most extraordinary thing I have ever seen. It made me become an activist.
