The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic has taught us many lessons. One clear message has been the need for a new partnership between people affected and those providing medical care. Being Positive: The Lives of Men and Women With HIV, by Robert Klitzman, MD, helps to bridge those two worlds. Dr Klitzman, a psychiatrist, provides a framework based upon his professional experience for the stories of people living with HIV. His approach is refreshing in several regards.
