Hello- The median incubation period from HIV infection until development of AIDS is estimated at approximately 10 years for young adults. The estimate varies with the age at which infection occurs and is significantly shorter in infants and in older adults and varies even between infection at age 20 and infection at age 40.

It's not a fixed time of 8 years, may be 10 to 15 years also. But if you start treatment, 30 to 35 years healthy life is there. For more details take a private consult.
