HIV will probably remain in the history of medicine as one of his greatest successes. Cause of a real slaughter in the 80s and the first half of the 90s, more and more doctors do not hesitate to talk about HIV as a chronic disease. If there is no cure for HIV, tritherapies, available since 1996 and continually improved, allow today to live with it: HIV is no longer synonymous with AIDS, more than 80% of patients are in treatment success; it’s more than diabetes. Today HIV-positive parents can give birth to an HIV-negative child. But all is not rosy because HIV remains a social and cultural taboo and talk about their HIV status remains very difficult for the virus carriers. Beyond treatments, living with HIV is to live differently love, sex, and ones relationship to others. The promise of a vaccine being constantly postponed: what solutions to finally can talk about the end of AIDS? What preventive implement to make it effective? This film will report on the strong medical advances today and will investigate on the successes but also the failures of HIV. Resolutely oriented towards life, light and strong, without misery, human and very investigated, this film tells the reality of HIV today.
