Young HIV Patients Delay Starting Treatment

Half of young people living with HIV/AIDS wait too long to start their treatment, says a new study from Johns Hopkins. Also, Black positive youth were twice as likely to delay taking treatment compared to white positive youth. Delaying treatment can worsen one’s health, lower their CD4 count and make them more susceptible to passing the virus to others.
