Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) is defined by The United States Department of Health and Human Services as the daily use of a combination of HIV medicines (called an HIV regimen) to treat HIV infection. A person's initial HIV regimen generally includes three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs from at least two different HIV drug classes. These medications have changed HIV's status from a lethal illness to a chronic one.
