Life Expectancy for People Living with HIV/AIDS

It’s hard to find recent scientific and clinical studies about life expectancy of people living with HIV/AIDS in the western world. Keep in mind that life expectancy varies so much depending on when a person is diagnosed, how diligent the patient is with medication compliance, as well as their social situation (nutrition, street life, drug use, accessing medical care, mental illness, prostitution, co-infections, etc). This recent report in Medical News Today is indicating an average life expectancy of 65.8 years in the United Kingdom.
