HIV/AIDS

TO PRINT WIDE TABLES USE LANDSCAPE ORIENTATION

I'm going to read two statements about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. After I read each one, please tell me whether you think it is true or false, or if you don't know.
There are medical treatments available that are intended to help a person who is infected with HIV to live longer.*
