Your health | Undetectable? You can’t pass it on


Did you know that if an HIV-positive guy is on ARV treatment and the virus is undetectable, he cannot infect someone else?

Undetectable equals untransmittable. In other words, treatment stops transmission! Therefore, treatment is a huge priority.

That’s why WeTheBrave’s Call4Care want you to call them if you need any help gaining access to care.

Thousands of people are still infecting others with HIV because they are unaware that they are HIV-positive. If those people knew their status and got treatment until the virus was undetectable in their blood, they would no longer be in any danger of infecting anyone else with the virus.

Being undetectable doesn’t mean that you are no longer HIV-positive, it just means that you can no longer infect someone else. This is only possible on ARV treatment. If you stop treatment the virus will become strong again and infection will again be possible. Treatment keeps the virus weak.

Call4Care is a new initiative, whereby you can call, Whatsapp or text, Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm, to find out where and how you can know your HIV status and start treatment asap, so you too can become undetectable, even if you are HIV-positive.

Remember, HIV is only dangerous if it is left untreated. Whether it’s HIV prevention or treatment, call Call4Care and let them help you get the treatment that you need to stay strong and sexy!
