‘We are the solution’ anti-stigma campaign for Irish AIDS Day

Marking Irish AIDS Day, ACT UP Dublin and masc.life today launched a new social media campaign highlighting the health and prevention benefits of HIV treatment. 

The “We are the solution” campaign features men living with HIV explaining how effective treatment keeps them healthy and eliminates the risk of HIV being passed on during sex. 

This new initiative is part of the international “U=U” campaign. That campaign, started in 2016 by the US-based Prevention Access Campaign, promotes the message that “undetectable equals untransmittable”.

When someone is on effective HIV treatment with an undetectable viral load, there is no risk of the virus being transmitted sexually—even when other prevention methods (condoms, PEP, or PrEP) are not used.
