Undetectable Equals Untransmittable, #ScienceNotStigma!

ndetectable Equals Untransmittable (MAKE THIS A LINK) or U=U,  is a fast growing important campaign based on a solid foundation of scientific evidence, with the goal to cause more people living with HIV (and their friends and families) to comprehend that they can live long, healthy lives, have children, and never have to worry about passing on their infection to others. Scientist have proven and are working around the clock to continue to prove that if you are taking the proper medicine regimen and maintaining an undetectable viral load have effectively no risk of sexually transmitting the virus to an HIV-negative partner. The CDC officially backed the science behind the campaign in 2017 in the fight against HIV.
