Treatment as prevention (U=U)

Undetectable = Uninfectious GraphicIf a person living with HIV is on treatment, they are taking it as prescribed, and it is working effectively, the amount of virus in their blood will become undetectable, meaning there is too little of it for tests to pick up.

Once they have been undetectable on treatment for six months, it means they are uninfectious. This is called UNDETECTABLE = UNINFECTIOUS (U=U), and means that if you have HIV and you’re on effective treatment, and you are undetectable for six months, you cannot pass it on to your partners.
