A new research paper has suggested that with timely diagnosis and starting HIV treatment promptly, average life expectancy (for gay men) is typically expected to be 75 years. This increased to 78 years if the man didn’t smoke. Life expectancy was shorter for those who were diagnosed late (i.e. with a low CD4 count), but was still above 71 years. This figures are only slightly lower than those for the general population, with a life expectancy of 82 years.
