HIV: The Latest Advances, News & Headlines

HIV
The current story of HIV is that there is no scientific reason people should die from this disease. Science has developed effective treatments over the last generation that can allow poz people to achieve an undetectable viral load and live a long, healthy life. Thanks to the community efforts of U=U, more and more people are understanding the basic fact that “undetectable” means incapable of transmitting the virus. Still, while community actions have changed the epidemic, there's still a long way to go on the path forward. PrEP, the daily prevention pill, is highly effective at preventing transmission of the virus and has been a source of groundbreaking community activism, changing the course of the epidemic. Here at Hornet we want to keep you informed on all the latest scientific advances and headlines surrounding HIV and issues that intersect with the virus, from health care and stigma to decriminalization efforts.
