Prevent HIV Transmission
People on effective antiretroviral treatment with an undetectable viral load don’t transmit HIV to others through sex (known as Undetectable Equals Untransmittible, or U=U).
Condoms prevent transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. If you inject drugs, use a new syringe every time. If you’re in a relationship with an HIV-negative partner,
discuss pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). If your partner has had a possible exposure to HIV, have them discuss post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) with a health care provider.
● Ask the right questions:
o What can I do to stay healthy and avoid getting other infections? o How can I prevent passing HIV to others?
o How will HIV treatment affect my lifestyle?
o How should I tell my partner that I have HIV?
