Vancouver’s Dr. Peter Centre weighs in on study on HIV life expectancy rates (BC Centre for HIV/AIDS)
A new study suggests Canadians with HIV receiving antiretroviral treatment can now expect to live as long as 65 years.
But Maxine Davis with Vancouver’s Dr. Peter Centre takes issue with it, however, saying that’s only for people who do not have complications, such as mental illness and addiction.
Dr. Robert Hogg, who has worked with Simon Fraser University and the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, led the research effort.
