Undetectable = Untransmittable
Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) means that there is no risk of HIV transmission during sex if the person living with HIV has an undetectable viral load while taking HIV medications for at least six months. Staying on HIV medications keeps you healthy and protects your partners.
"Undetectable" means that a test cannot detect the amount of virus in a blood sample. It doesn't mean that there's no HIV in the body—just that the virus is being controlled. Learn more about U=U.
