Undetectable Equals Untransmittable
February 15, 2019
A breakthrough message for patients that must be delivered correctly by health care providers. The Undetectable Equals Untransmittable, or U=U, move­ment is a global campaign definitively stating that people living with HIV (PLWH) who have undetectable HIV RNA are unable to transmit HIV.
By educating people, the hope is that they will get tested and, if necessary, start and stay on treatment. This message has been endorsed by many organizations, including the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the HIV Medicine Association.
