Undetectable = Untransmittable

Reaching an undetectable HIV viral load is one of the goals of HIV treatment.  Undetectable means that the amount of HIV virus in your blood is so little that it can’t be measured with laboratory tests.

Current research shows that taking HIV medications as prescribed, getting to an undetectable viral load and staying undetectable prevents transmitting HIV to others through sex.
