An AID's Free Generation?
"Only about 30 percent of those who are HIV-positive in the U.S. are being treated with medications that can make their viral load undetectable"
HIV-Positive and 'Undetectable': What Does It Really Mean?
- "an HIV-positive person can achieve undetectable levels after undergoing antiretroviral therapy (ART). A level of a person's HIV viral load is what causes them to be more or less likely to transmit the disease. An undetectable viral load reduces the likelihood of transmission by 96 percent. Once a person achieves an undetectable status, it is possible to remain at this level provided that the person is compliant with their ART medication."
"Far too often, our community mistakes silence as an admission of innocence. If no one asks about a person's HIV status, no one tells. Worse, a person will assert their HIV-negative status even if it's been months, or even years, since their last HIV test."
"In the realm of sex and dating, the responsibility lies with you to make the appropriate choices to protect your health."
