HIV-positive people should start antiretroviral therapy?

HIV-positive people therapy is globaly proposed. Antiretroviral treatments are known to substantially reduce mortality in AIDS patients, which has meant that this disease has become a chronic long-term illness. It has now been suggested that in order to improve both prospects for cure and to reduce the rate of new infections, it is highly advisable to start antiretroviral treatment in all HIV-positive people, not only those in higher risk groups (Nature 523; 127,2015), a proposal that may have objective social and economic problems.
