There are so many rumours, myths and speculation about ARVs. But the simple truth is: it saves lives. Hundreds of thousands of them, every year.
This video by the Topsy Foundation illustrates the dramatic effect ARVs have on the lives of Aids patients.
It shows the improvement of an Aids patient, Selinah's, condition over a period of 90 days. The video starts at day-90, going backwards three months to when she first started ARV treatment.
