What We Know About HIV Transmission Should Influence PrEP Messaging

It is pretty clear that those who are diagnosed with HIV who are in care and on medicine are not spreading the virus. So why do people continue to discuss PrEP solely in the context of having known HIV-positive partners? And in what ways do we still stigmatize people living with HIV in our discussions around PrEP as a tool to bridge the viral divide?

Changing the Narrative: Why HIV prevention work in Canada needs to embrace HIV treatment

In 2014, UNAIDS proposed an ambitious set of targets for the global scale-up of HIV treatment. This approach to the HIV response is based on research showing that early, life-long HIV treatment can dramatically improve the health of people living with HIV and can also dramatically reduce HIV transmission. The new UNAIDS strategy emphasizes that the tremendous potential of HIV treatment is not being realized, not even in developed countries like Canada. This must change to bring the HIV epidemic under control. In this article we will explore the crucial role HIV prevention work can play in the UNAIDS call for a “new narrative on HIV treatment.”
