Living with HIV used to be a short hop. Thankfully, with today’s treatments, you’re now more likely to go for the long-haul.
This website offers information on preparing for your lifelong journey with HIV. Start your journey with our HIV101 flight safety video with your special flight attendants, check out the articles on the health checks you should consider as you get older with HIV and how to work with health professionals to ensure you get the best treatment and care. It also offers guidance on how people with HIV can shape the care they receive, some tips on insurance and personal finance and a checklist on how to take control of your HIV journey.
Like any long journey, planning is merely the first step – you need to stay on track and keep assessing progress along the route. Your doctor is your co-pilot who’s there to help you to avoid turbulent times. Use the Health MOT to make sure that your doctor knows your destination and understands the best way to get you there.
So sit down, strap in and prepare for take-off!
