Charlie Sheen is facing his diagnosis head-on.

The actor, 50, discussed his fight against HIV on Monday’s episode of “The Dr. Oz Show,” stating that he’s dedicating his life to eradicating the disease that can lead to AIDS.

“I hope in my abilities to do something really positive with this,” he said.

The interview was filmed in and around Sheen’s California home, as well as the show’s studio in New York City.

Sheen will also be featured on the show Tuesday.

CHARLIE SHEEN WAS NOT HONEST ABOUT HIS HIV, FORMER LOVER SAYS

During the segment that aired Monday, Sheen discussed a dream he had when he was 28 years old, in which he saw himself with a sign around his neck — and it said “AIDS” on it, he told Oz.

He said he has changed his lifestyle, curtailing his drinking and committing to working out regularly, including jogging, swimming and yoga.

The former “Two and a Half Men” star revealed that he had HIV on the “Today” show in November, after a report emerged that he had tested positive for the virus more than four years ago.
