HIV is manageable. People living with HIV who take their medications every day, exactly as prescribed, and maintain a suppressed viral load, can live long and healthy lives. This is known as #TreatmentAsPrevention.

Achieving and maintaining an undetectable HIV viral load will keep your immune system strong and you healthy. It also means that you won't transmit HIV to your sexual partners as long as U remain undetectable. #EndTheEpidemic BigBendCares photo
