Undetectable = Untransmittable
The U=U Campaign
PFY and the Long Island ETE Project are excited to bring the U=U (Undetectable=Untransmittable) message to Long Island!
With medical science and research to support us, we can now say that an individual living with HIV, engaged in effective treatment with an undetectable viral load, cannot transmit HIV to their sexual partners. Our campaign is focused on educating the broader community on the U=U message, in order to diminish HIV stigma and help more individuals living with HIV engage in effective treatment.
U=U is an important tool in our work to end the AIDS epidemic on Long Island and throughout NYS. Our LI ETE Project partners at Northwell Health, Hudson River Healthcare, and Hofstra University fully support the U=U message and are working in collaboration with Pride for Youth , to break down stigma around HIV, encourage people to live as their healthiest selves, and stop HIV transmission!
Special thanks to Prevention Access Campaign, www.preventionaccess.org, for their guidance and support in helping us to create this campaign. To learn more about U=U be sure to check out our U=U FAQ page!
U=U Workshops with PFY
Effectively Incorporate the U=U Message into your HIV Prevention and Care Programs with PFY's U=U workshops!
We now have the science to say that a person living with HIV, engaged in effective treatment and with an undetectable viral load, cannot transmit HIV to their sexual partners.
This interactive workshop will explore the background and science that have brought us to this groundbreaking moment in HIV prevention and care. We will examine the language needed to carry the message to professionals and clients, as well as the potential benefits to diminishing HIV stigma and engaging individuals living with HIV, in effective treatment.
Attendees will develop an understanding how U=U fits into NYS three point plan for ending the AIDS epidemic, as well as how to incorporate the U=U message into all aspects of your HIV prevention and care programs.
