What Will HIV Treatment Look Like in Five Years?y?

HIV antiretroviral therapy first arrived on the scene almost 30 years ago and changed HIV from being a fatal virus into a chronic, manageable disease. Since then, the medications have become more effective, simplified and tolerable. However, adherence and side effects still remain an issue. Today, there's buzz and research surrounding longer-acting regimens, less frequent doses and even possible cure strategies.

We asked some of the leading experts and advocates in HIV care what they think HIV treatment will look like in five years. These interviews were conducted at the 21st Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Boston earlier this month.

Reporting for this slide show was provided by Terri Wilder and Myles Helfand.
