Undetectable = Untransmittable

The goal of ART (anti-retroviral treatment) is to lower a person’s HIV viral load to undetectable status.

This means that a person who is undetectable cannot transmit HIV to a sexual partner.

This is huge news and changes how we approach HIV infection.  It is why early treatment is so important.  And it means that HIV is a chronic condition, like diabetes.
