Undetectable = Untransmittable: The Message and the Movement

In early 2016, people living with HIV organized with allies and researchers to communicate a life-changing but widely unknown and radical fact: a person living with HIV who has an undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV to sexual partners. In other words, Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U). In this webinar, you’ll hear the insights from two U=U Ambassadors and gain tools and strategies to communicate this life-changing, stigma-busting, adherence-promoting message in meaningful and culturally competent ways.

The Invisible Crisis: HIV/AIDS Among Hispanic/Latino in the United States

A largely overlooked HIV crisis among Latinx in the U.S. is emerging against the backdrop of reinforced national efforts to end the U.S. HIV/AIDS epidemic by 2030. Although there has been substantial overall progress in the fight against HIV reflected in U.S. aggregate data, recent data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention raise alarming concerns about widening, yet largely unrecognized, HIV/AIDS disparities among Latinx.
