Treatment Is More Than Prevention: Perceived Personal and Social Benefits of Undetectable = Untransmittable Messaging Among Sexual Minority Men Living with HIV

Dec 03, 2020 | Shalesha Majors

A survey of over 30,000 adolescent and adult sexual minority men living with HIV found growing acceptance of U = U science in 2018 and 2019. The findings from survey, which discuss respondents’ perception of personal and societal benefits from U = U and common sources of information on viral suppression and transmission, demonstrate the significant personal and social importance of U = U that go above-and-beyond the well-documented health benefits of viral suppression, suggesting that providers should consider routinely initiating conversations with patients around the multifaceted benefits (personal health, sexual safety and intimacy, increased self-image, and reduced social stigma) of viral suppression.
