Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is treatment designed for people infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) using anti-HIV drugs. The treatment consists of a combination of at least three drugs (often called “highly active antiretroviral therapy” or HAART) that suppress HIV replication. Three drugs are used in order to reduce the survival of the virus developing resistance. ART has the potential both to reduce mortality and morbidity rates among HIV-infected people, and to improving their quality of life. A combination of three or more antiretroviral medicines is more effective than using just one medicine to treat HIV.The use of three or more antiretroviral medicines—sometimes referred to as an anti-HIV "cocktail"—is currently the standard treatment for HIV infection.
