Confusion Over Side Effects of HIV Meds in Australia
The National Association of People Living With HIV (NAPWA) in
Australia is launching an awareness campaign for new HIV drug treatment plans, the
Melbourne Weekly reports. Currently, 10 percent of HIV cases in Australia
remain undiagnosed and 30 percent of people with the virus choose to go
untreated because they don’t realize the new medications don’t cause debilitating
side effects, activists said. The NAPWA campaign seeks to dispel myths, start
conversations and encourage treatment.
