Modern, potent antiretroviral therapy regimens can suppress human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication indefinitely. For those who have access to these drugs and who are able to adhere on a daily basis to these drugs, life expectancy now approaches that of individuals without HIV infection, particularly if they start therapy early.1,2 Full lifetime viral suppression offers the potentially transformative public health benefit of reducing transmission leading to a decline in number of new HIV infections.3
