Our work encompasses HIV support, awareness, prevention and testing.
News from tvps HQ
One of the reasons people living with HIV experience stigma is because there has been very little education about HIV and U=U. It stands for Undetectable equals Untransmittable. It means that if someone is taking HIV medication regularly the level of HIV antibodies in their blood stream is so low that they become undetectable so they cannot pass the virus onto anyone else. The U=U message is so important as this can literally halt the onward transmission of HIV.
