       Undetectable =Untransmittable

 

The science is clear. People living with HIV can feel confident that if they have an undetectable viral load (for at least 6 months) and take their medications as prescribed, they will not pass on HIV to sexual partners (Undetectable = Untransmittable U=U).

 

U=U offers freedom and hope. For many people living with HIV and their partners, U=U opens up social, sexual, and reproductive choices they never thought would be possible. It is an unprecedented opportunity to transform the lives of people with HIV and the field:

 

·Reduces the shame and fear of sexual transmission and opens up possibilities for conceiving children without alternative means of insemination.

 

·Dismantles HIV stigma on the community, clinical, and personal level.

 

·Encourages people living with HIV to start and stay on treatment to keep them and their partners healthy. 

 

·Offers a strong public health argument for universal access to diagnostics, treatment, and care to save lives and bring us closer to ending the epidemic.

 

However, the majority of millions of people living with HIV do not know U=U, and many do not have access to the diagnostics, treatment, and care they need to achieve and maintain an undetectable viral load. There are still confusing messages, outdated websites, and uninformed policymakers and healthcare workers who are not comfortable sharing this information, don't yet know about it, or don't yet realize the significance of it.
