Begin HIV treatment sooner, not later, experts say
USA Today

People who test positive for HIV should begin treatment immediately rather than wait until their disease deteriorates, a leading medical society announced Sunday at an international AIDS conference here. The new strategy reflects the findings of recent research showing that people whose virus is well-controlled are rendered virtually non-contagious. The statement came from the International Antiviral Society-USA Panel during AIDS 2012, the 19th international AIDS conference, and is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
