The most important thing about managing a new diagnosis of HIV is to get the healthcare you need. 

We have a team of specialists who are here to help you manage every aspect of your healthcare.  Our team includes doctors who are specialists in immunology and infectious diseases, a paediatrician who treats infants, children and adolescents, a clinical leader, nurses, social workers, a pharmacist, a dietitian, a business clerk and researchers.  We work together so that you get the best healthcare we can provide.

Thanks to major improvements in the care and treatment of HIV, most people living with HIV live long lives and can look forward to doing all the things in life they planned-career, relationships, children, travel, etc. are all still possible. You will have to make some adjustments, there will be health, social and other changes to get used to. 

There’s lots to learn and new information to digest, your healthcare providers and other groups, such as AIDS Service Organizations, can help you.
