There is still no cure for AIDS, but science has come a long way towards controlling it. Antiretroviral therapy has progressed so much in the last two decades that, according to current reports, a person who started taking the drugs at age 20 will on average live another 43 years.
And we can expect the science to keep getting better. Thus, a man in his 20′s who gets infected with HIV today can probably expect to live — by a conservative estimate — to his 70′s. That’s a remarkable state of affairs for a disease that only a decade ago was equated with a death sentence.
Of course, I still recommend that you use condoms when there is no intent to procreate!
