U=U

U=U means undetectable = untransmittable 

When a person is living with HIV and is on effective treatment, it lowers the level of HIV (the viral load) in the blood. When the levels are low it is referred to as an undetectable viral load. This means that HIV cannot be passed on sexually.

U=U also applies to you. It is a very important statement in the fight to reduce HIV stigma. In that way we can include people with an undetectable viral load as a essential asset in the fight against HIV.

 

U=U is supported by the gay community, healthcare organizations, HIV healthcare professionals and the GGD. If you are HIV positive, or you have sex with a partner who has HIV, always discuss your HIV status and see if U=U also applies to you and your sex-partner.

 

Together we are stronger and will be able to reduce HIV stigma even more.
