What's Health Got to Do with It?

The immune responses of young MS patients; HIV/AIDS challenges


The immune system in a human body acts as a personalized defense mechanism, employing antibodies or cells to eliminate bugs and external threats. How does the immune system respond when things go wrong? Today, we explore the effect of multiple sclerosis on young patients and the challenges they face, along with treatment and support options.


In recognition of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, we discuss the effect of the disease on the Black community. Despite advancements in technology and medication, there is still work to be done. The conversation emphasizes the importance of improving access to HIV education, testing, treatment and prevention services.

  • Dr. Toyin Nwafor, senior medical director of disease and prevention at ViiV Healthcare.
