PARTNER2 official press release

Dr. Alison Rodger from UCL, London (lead author on the PARTNER study) explains the study: “The PARTNER2 study was designed to find whether HIV transmission occurs in gay men when viral load was suppressed. Despite these couples having sex without condoms almost 77,000 times we did not find a single case. PARTNER2 data provides robust evidence for gay men that the risk of HIV transmission with suppressive ART is effectively zero, supporting the message of the U=U campaign.” 

Simon Collins, an HIV positive treatment activist at HIV i-Base, London, and one of the community representatives involved in the study said: “PARTNER2 has met the community demand from gay men to have accurate data about our health. There is no evidence that HIV transmission can actually occur when viral load is undetectable. Our data continue to support the international U=U awareness campaign.”
