National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of AIDS Research: U=U is a game changer!

In a letter issued today, Dr. Maureen M. Goodenow, director of the NIH Office of AIDS Research, explained “U=U is a game changer because it transforms the social, sexual, and reproductive lives of PWH. It enables PWH and their partners to be in a relationship without fear of transmitting HIV. PWH report no longer feeling ‘like a pariah’ or ‘contaminated.’ Furthermore, it changes the way health professionals, the public, employers, and policymakers see and make decisions related to PWH.”

“U=U is an essential component for ending the epidemic. When people learn that U=U, they are more likely to get tested and to start and stay on a treatment. Staying on ART brings health benefits to PWH, their partners, and the general public.”
