Webinar

On Friday, June 30, 2017 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm ET, the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy will host a community led “Community Response to the Effects of HIV Treatment and Viral Suppression on Transmission” webinar.

In the last year, compelling new evidence has demonstrated that HIV treatment significantly reduces sexual transmission of HIV. In addition, this research found no cases of HIV that were transmitted sexually by individuals with a suppressed viral load. This research adds to the findings of earlier studies that assessed HIV treatment, viral load, and transmission.

Join the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy for this exciting opportunity to learn how community leaders and organizations have responded to these data and what they mean on a personal level to people living with HIV. These messages have the potential to help support progress on the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and our shared vison of an America where new HIV infections are rare, and when they do occur, every person, regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socio-economic circumstance will have unfettered access to high quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination.
