Undetectable = Untransmittable: Sexual Transmission of HIV from Virally Suppressed People Living with HIV

Last Updated

NASTAD reaffirms the conclusive scientific evidence that people living with HIV who are on antiretroviral therapy (ART) and are durably virally suppressed (defined as having a consistent viral load of less than <200 copies/ml) do not sexually transmit HIV. This renewed statement and recommitment actions for governmental public health reinforces our longstanding work to end the dual epidemics of HIV and HIV-related stigma and to dramatically reduce new HIV infections through policies and public health practice grounded in science.
