An HIV treatment journey

Roger Pebody

This illustrated leaflet shows the journey a lot of people go on with HIV treatment. It involves the decision to start treatment, problems with side effects and adherence, changing treatment and then finding a treatment which allows you to live a long and healthy life.

But please remember that each person’s situation is different. Your own circumstances may mean that the journey you take is slightly different.

This leaflet is also available in Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Thai and Turkish.
