HIV Treatment

Effective treatments are available that can help you live a long and healthy life

If you have a positive HIV result, a referral will be made to the Blood Borne Virus Clinic – the Annanhill Suite which is based at Crosshouse Hospital. The specialist team of nurses and doctors will provide you with the care, information and support you require and advise on your treatment options based on other test results.

HIV infection is treated with a regime of oral medication. While the treatments cannot cure HIV, they help keep the virus under control and can reduce the levels of virus in the blood which can have a dramatic effect on improving the health and life expectancy of someone living with HIV.
