The process of putting someone on treatment — preventing someone from getting HIV to begin with — saves the healthcare system somewhere between 0,000 and 0,000 just in terms of average care without the cost of hospitalizations. What about people who think they shouldn’t have to pay for AIDS treatment? S.: I like to say to people that individual health equals community health equals public health and it’s short sighted to say, “Oh, someone’s cancer or someone’s heart disease is their problem, I shouldn’t have to help to pay for it.” They spirit of this country has always been we help our sisters and brothers and our neighbors and with an infectious disease like HIV, that equation is all the more important. L.: If there are any long term survivors reading this or anyone who knows a long term survivor, GMHC is available to them as well.Kelsey Louie: Tools like Pr EP and PEP, if they are made less accessible, they are not going to be effective, so we need to make sure people have access to them. If you help maintain an individual living with HIV’s health to an undetectable viral load, they can’t spread the virus to another individual and the community health is protected and if you eliminate or dramatically reduce the HIV virus that’s swimming around the community pool you can eliminate all HIV infections for the public. “ “Part of it is acknowledging and honoring and appreciating the contributions that long-term survivors have made to the improvement in HIV medication, the policies we have and basically everything we have today for people living with HIV and AIDS,” Louie added.

The team's main motivation for including three protagonists was for Grand Theft Auto V to innovate game storytelling and to prevent the series from feeling stale by not evolving the core structure of the gameplay.
The concept of having three interconnected protagonists was devised during the development of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (2004), but the team felt they did not have the technical capabilities to realise it.
According to Houser, each of the protagonists is unlike any primary character that has appeared in a Grand Theft Auto title to date: Michael represents a protagonist who "won" in life, and is now trying to adjust to a normal one after his story has come to an end; Trevor is a supporting character recast as a central protagonist; and Franklin is someone who has had no real exposure to a life of crime until the events of the game, and his attempts to avoid such a life end up thrusting him into the middle of it.
