The Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine endorses U=U
The Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) released a powerful and important statement in support of U=U at the ASHM HIV 2017 conference:
“ASHM will be working in collaboration with its community, clinical and research partners to support the health workforce with training and resources to enhance their ability to convey what U=U means and the strength of the science that underpins the U=U campaign. This will be important for all people living with HIV, but especially those who are newly diagnosed, or who fear being tested for HIV.
“Ultimately it is a scientific and clinical imperative for health workers to promote U=U in their practice: It presents an important and powerful message encouraging individuals towards a more positive attitude towards their sexual and mental health and overall improvement in their quality of life and for those around them.”
