Miss Universe Việt Nam H’Hen Nie Supports U=U

“Miss Universe Việt Nam H’Hen Nie has called for reducing stigma and discrimination against HIV patients at the Miss Universe 2018 contest that is now being held in Bangkok. H’Hen Nie is participating in the United Nations’ Global Campaign on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) as part of the effort to create “a red ribbon wave” at this year’s beauty pageant.

H’Hen Nie has also been involved in the U=U campaign (undetectable=untransmittable) funded by the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The statement builds on evidence-based research demonstrating that HIV treatment is highly effective in reducing HIV transmission and that people living with HIV on ARV (antiretroviral) treatment with an undetectable viral load have effectively no risk of sexual transmission.”
