We now know more about HIV than we ever have. We know that if you are diagnosed, connected to care, and start HIV treatment early you can have a long, healthy, full life. We also know that HIV treatment and maintaining an undetectable viral load is not only great for your health but also makes it unlikely that the virus can be passed on. We also have more tools than ever before to prevent the transmission of HIV.
