Q&A: Living with HIV/AIDS

Actor Charlie Sheen revealed to the world this week that he’s HIV positive.

AIDS Care Ocean State CEO Paul Fitzgerald and Dr. Philip Chan, who specializes in infectious diseases at Miriam Hospital, joined Eyewitness News Wednesday to discuss issues facing those living with HIV and AIDS.

Fitzgerald and Chan say the prognosis is actually good for patients who lead normal lives.

They also believe Sheen’s announcement will help raise awareness for HIV/AIDS prevention.
