The lives of people with HIV will never be the same. People worldwide are mobilizing to put an end to misinformation about HIV transmission by spreading the news that Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U). With research confirming that people on effective HIV treatment cannot pass on the virus to sexual partners, U=U has the power to transform HIV prevention and care, and liberate people from stigma and fear. The U=U pre-conference will bring global partners together for the first time to celebrate this message of freedom and hope. Participants will learn about the latest science, messaging and advocacy campaigns around the globe, gaining the tools to put these groundbreaking facts into action in their own communities. Come join a growing movement of more than 650 partners in 79 countries. Together we will rewrite the HIV risk narrative and break the barriers that have held back people with HIV for too long.
