      The Human Immunodeficiency Virus was first identified in 1984, and throughout Professor Pete's 40-year career changes in therapy happen almost every year.  From the 4-H Club, Drug Holidays and the CD4 count thresholds for treatment, HIV therapy is always changing.

This webinar is a concise overview of the mechanisms of action, side effects and of course the benefits adherence for our patients. Patients in the 1990's taking handfuls of pills, while now there are now 11 different regimens that are simply one tablet daily.
