Photo of the week: A man, his medicine and HIV

There is no cure as yet for HIV, which means that medicines to control the vius must be taken life-long. The regime is complicated, and particularly difficult for people challenged  environmentally, culturally and physiologically with poverty, stigma and the process of ageing itself. The forthcoming CCS public lecture being given by Professor Jenny Hoy focuses on how long term infection with HIV and its treatment with antiretroviral therapy affects different body systems which contribute to the increased likelihood of chronic illness such as cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.
