World AIDS Day 2023: How You Can Help

Know the facts about HIV:

  • HIV is a chronic but manageable disease.
  • HIV medicines can’t cure HIV, but they help people with HIV live long, healthy lives.
  • People with HIV take a combination of HIV medicines every day.
  • HIV can only be transmitted three ways: Unprotected sex, sharing of needles, and mother to child: pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • If a person is undetectable by taking medications every day they are suppressed and the virus cannot be transmitted! This is called: U=U, Undetectable = Untransmittable.
