If A Twice YEARLY (every 6 Months) Treatment Was Available, Would You Take It?

If A Twice YEARLY (every 6 Months) Treatment Was Available, Would You Take It?

Now that in the past 2 years the United States has went from a monthly shot to bimonthly shot for HIV treatment, long after Europe approved it, would you take a biyearly shot
As I always mention, Europe is ALWAYS ahead of the United States in HIV care. Europe has now approved a biyearly (every 6 months) HIV treatment.

Who, in the US, would stand up to the big pharma lobbyists who line the pockets of the politicians' who remain on the side of the big pharmaceuticals?
Europe has always been much more progressive than the US when it relates to HIV/AIDS treatment and care.
I would love to get jabbed every 6 months if only to get rid of my out-of-pocket costs for the pills, get rid of the HERO pill dispenser, and bottom line, save me money. Perhaps in my lifetime this will come about. My life expectancy is 82, that gives me 19 more years of waiting for the bi-annual shot. If not for me, then for the younger ones here who are continually seeking a more efficient and better way of treatment.

I keep having nightmares of the supply chain somehow falling apart, and my biktarvy never reaching me. If such a treatment existed, I guess it would help my anxiety a bit. . .

I assume youd still have to get checked every so often to see if its still working. though, it would be nice not to worry so much about the pills.
