Becoming a parent should not be denied to HIV positive gay and bisexual men

If a man cannot pass HIV onto another man during sex because his viral load is undetectable, then it follows that his sperm would not pass HIV to a surrogate or child should he wish to conceive in this way.

How hard is it to say that HIV-positive people who have suppressed the virus through effective antiretroviral drugs do not pose any transmission risk to their sexual partners? Pretty hard, it seems, as just about every day I see some commentator fudge their response, with statements using terms such as “extremely unlikely” or “reduces the risk”.

Undetectable = untransmittable

Undetectable = untransmittable is the message of a new UNAIDS Explainer. With 20 years of evidence demonstrating that HIV treatment is highly effective in reducing the transmission of HIV, the evidence is now clear that people living with HIV with an undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV sexually.
