What is ART and what are ARVs?

ART stands for antiretroviral treatment. It is also called therapy or combination therapy or HIV treatment.

HIV drugs are called antiretrovirals (ARVs) because HIV is a type of virus called a retrovirus.

ART nearly always includes at least three active drugs.

Some pills contain more than one drug and some single pills contain a complete combination.
