Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U)

With developments in anti-retroviral treatment (ART) the majority of people living with HIV can achieve an undetectable viral load. This means that copies of the HIV virus don't show up on some tests. This is a fantastic development because it also means that if someone living with HIV (is HIV positive) has unprotected sex with someone who is HIV negative (not living with HIV) they can't pass on the virus.

The term Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) is a really powerful way that we can help reduce the fear that many people still have of HIV and the stigma this creates for people living with HIV.
