The UK government has committed to ending HIV transmissions in the UK by 2030. A fundamental component of the work to achieve this is the fact that HIV treatment is also prevention. “Can’t Pass It On” and “Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U)” describe the fact that people living with HIV who are on effective treatment cannot pass the virus on to their sexual partners. U=U is a game changing message that has revolutionised how we talk about HIV. It helps to dismantle HIV stigma; it promotes HIV testing, it encourages treatment and engagement in care and it has the potential to transform the reproductive, sexual, social and personal lives of people living with HIV.
This free online webinar featuring experts in the field, as well as a panel of people living with HIV, will enable you to both understand the evidence supporting this message and confidently discuss this in practice with patients and colleagues.
