Early HIV treatment reduces risk of serious illness and death by 44%

Starting HIV treatment at a CD4 cell count above 500 reduced the risk of serious illness including tuberculosis (TB), and death, by 44% when compared to starting treatment according to World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, results from the seven-year Temprano study show. The findings were presented on Wednesday at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2015) in Seattle, USA.

Rethink AIDS

The Kaleidoscope, comprising solely of students from SIM-UB, started off with a dream. A dream to present great music for an even greater cause. Finally, it has all come to fruition.

Through our event, we hope to generate awareness among youths and reduce the stigma associated with people living with HIV/AIDS. Its time to change our perspectives and #RethinkAIDS!
