HIV ‘chronic’ but ‘manageable’: expert (Dr. Julio Montaner)
HIV is no longer a death sentence in B.C.
While experts view it as a “chronic manageable condition,” stigma and an increase in non-AIDS-related illness and mortality remain a concern.
That’s why on Dec. 1 — to coincide with World AIDS Day — Dr. Julio Montaner, director of the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, will unveil his group’s “Healthy Aging with HIV” initiative to boost the longevity of people living with HIV.
