Do the drugs given in anti retroviral therapy(ART) to HIV patients have any anti bacterial or anti parasitic effect as well to any extent?
As HIV itself is not a disease but the death is due to the co- infection of other means. That means the death occurs due to the other infection. In this case a simpler disease can cause death of the patient. In my openion ART have to reduce the Bacterial and Parasitic co-infection.
