"Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U)" is a groundbreaking concept affirming that individuals living with HIV who consistently undergo treatment to reduce the virus in their body to undetectable levels have a negligible risk of transmitting HIV to their partners. This phenomenon hinges on achieving and maintaining an undetectable viral load, where the quantity of the virus in the bloodstream is extremely low and falls below detectable levels. This transformative approach not only safeguards the individual's health but also significantly diminishes the likelihood of HIV transmission to their partners. Embracing this strategy not only promotes personal well-being but also contributes to advancing a safer and more informed understanding of HIV prevention within communities worldwide.

For people with HIV to acknowledge and benefit from U=U, they must have full access to Viral Load tests and results, they have a right to advocate and demand these services. Health Care Workers must ensure clients have access to viral load tests and share results with clients in a simple language. HSPN convened a viral load testing advocacy event (with key stakeholders) to educate communities about the importance of viral load testing and results, and how these are aligned to U=U
