HIV TREATMENT WORKS “Hear this, HIV: I’m going to take care of me so I can take care of those I love.” Angie - Loganville, GA Living with HIV since 1995. I break into dance whenever the mood and music move me. I won’t let my HIV rob me of anything in life. I know that staying in care and on treatment helps me to be the best mother, wife, and HIV prevention educator I can be. I tell other HIV-positive women: All the fear that you have can be overcome. Every day I wash down my pills with a prayer. I’ll continue to do so until my dying day—and HIV will not be the cause of it. Get in care. Stay in care. Live well. cdc.gov/HIVTreatmentWorks
