I had to post this after Art Deco, D666 et al saying I'm "sick" LOL.

'Good mental health was the only significant factor associated with optimal pill-taking among people taking antiretroviral therapy (ART) for the prevention of sexual transmission of HIV, investigators from the HPTN 052 study report in the online edition of the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes.

High levels of adherence were observed after one month and one year of follow-up, and – unsurprisingly – people who took 95% of more of their ART doses were more likely to achieve virological suppression."


On the flip side, if someone who denigrates someone who is healthy and on ART...if they promote stigma....don't they have poor mental health?

Stigma in itself is a hindrance to HIV care.

"Evidence shows that stigma reduction is crucial to the success of HIV prevention, care, and treatment efforts. Stigma and fear of stigma discourage people from getting tested for HIV, disclosing their HIV status, seeking care, and adhering to treatment."
