INDIA: We can end AIDS now if “undetectable equals untransmittable” becomes a reality for all persons living with HIV
U=U is a central theme of the 13th National Conference of AIDS Society of India (13th ASICON). “If every person living with HIV is aware of the positive status, receiving lifesaving and effective antiretroviral therapy, and remains virally suppressed, then not only [the] virus becomes undetectable but also untransmittable (U Equals U). Not only this will ensure optimal quality of life for every person living with HIV but also will help translate the promise of our governments to end AIDS by 2030. We can end AIDS now,” said Dr Jyoti Dhar, senior HIV expert from UK, at the opening of ASICON.
