Today marks Irish AIDS day. Dr Aisling Loy of Himerus Health was invited on to Ireland am to discuss HIV in Ireland today. The most important points are that:
1) It is best to know you status as then you can get treatment before your health worsens and/or you infect someone else.
2) It is easy to test, there are many testing sites around the country.
3) It is not a death sentence. Most people can be managed on a once daily regimen and have a normal life expectancy.
