WE ARE
POSITIVELY FEARLESS

Caring is
Fearless

Caring for ourselves takes courage. It calls for self-reflection, requires self-acceptance and demands a daily commitment to living our best lives.

Caring inspires us to make brave choices that put ourselves, our minds and our health first. For some of us, it's taking that first step toward an exercise routine. For others, it's eating healthier or prioritizing mental health.

Check out these nutrition and exercise tips to help you get started and stay on track.

Our HIV treatment is also part of self-care, and taking medications as prescribed is just the beginning. Finding the right treatment – and sticking to it – is an important part of self-care for all of us. Making thoughtful choices and being open with ourselves and our healthcare providers empowers us to be our best selves through the good times and the more difficult moments.

Use our Fearless Conversations guide to prepare for a candid discussion about your treatment path with your healthcare provider.

By taking care of ourselves, we can give our best, be our best, and even give back to the community.

Don't let the virus outsmart
your medication

When you miss doses, the virus can
mutate to resist your HIV medication. But
there are some HIV medications that could help reduce that risk.


Have fearless conversations with your
doctor. They can help you understand
the factors that put you at risk, and find
the treatment that works for you.

Let’s Get Real
About Risk

Everyone’s risk factors for developing HIV drug resistance are different – from how often we may miss doses to how busy our schedules are. But for anyone at risk, drug resistance can stop your medication – or even an entire class of medication – from working.

Understanding our risk and talking to our doctors helps create a treatment plan that can reduce our chances of developing drug resistance.

See what your individual risk is by taking the quiz below, and then talk to your doctor about your results.
