Treatment is good for YOU
If you have HIV, the sooner you start treatment, the better it is for your health – it protects you from illnesses which could shorten your life.
Treatment is good for ALL OF US
People on effective treatment cannot pass on HIV. That’s because HIV medication works by reducing the amount of the virus in the body to ‘undetectable’ levels. This means the levels of HIV are so low that the virus cannot be passed on. This is called having an ‘undetectable viral load’.
