Who is the longest living person with HIV?
Miguel, nicknamed the Lisbon Patient, made international headlines earlier this year when he turned 100, making him the oldest known person living with the virus. His doctors recently reported that he “died peacefully” in his sleep, reports Canada’s CTV news.
Can I find out if someone has HIV?
The only way to tell if a person has HIV is through the HIV Antibody Test, which detects the presence of antibodies produced by the body in response to the HIV virus. It can take up to three months for antibodies to be developed.
How long can you stay undetectable?
A person’s viral load is considered “durably undetectable” when all viral load test results are undetectable for at least six months after their first undetectable test result. This means that most people will need to be on treatment for 7 to 12 months to have a durably undetectable viral load.
Having an undetectable viral load does mean that there is not enough HIV in your body fluids to pass HIV on during sex. In other words, you are not infectious. For as long as your viral load stays undetectable, your chance of passing on HIV to a sexual partner is zero.
If you’re undetectable, you will still test positive for HIV. This is expected, and doesn’t mean that your treatment is not working.
What will happen if I skip my ARV for 2 days?

If you realize you have missed a dose, go ahead and take the medication as soon as you can, then take the next dose at your usual scheduled time.
