IDU or HIV?

A Jakartan man who is believed to have contracted HIV from sharing needles for heroin usage attributes his good health to antiretroviral medication, placing somewhat less emphasis on the methadone which has helped to beat his addiction.

His wife is also HIV+ from heroin via shared needles, and the couple’s three children seemed to have been conceived before treatment, and after alleged affection, yet “He added that he and his wife were fortunate because they had not passed on the infection to their three children.”

Three times lucky or twice deceived?
