Hello, It is better to reveal the details of his illness to your father. Because sooner or later he will have to take antiretroviral treatment as his disease progresses. He will need regular health checks and CD 4 count monitoring.You might end up harming him by preventing him from taking care of his health. Nowadays, there are effective treatments for HIV infection and by taking medications as prescribed.
