HIV/AIDS treatment has progressed exponentially over the last few decades, with AIDS-related death rates continuing to decline across the globe. However, that does not mean that we are no longer at risk of becoming infected with HIV and/or transmitting HIV to another person. New HIV cases continue to be reported each year, with patients in the LGBTQ+ communities being at an increased risk of contracting the virus. At HEALOR Primary Care in Las Vegas, NV, board-certified physician Dr. Raj Singh is committed to helping patients take charge of their health by understanding how to decrease their HIV/AIDS risk factors and knowing what to do if they suspect they may have been exposed to HIV.
