What impact, if any, do you believe this will have to people currently living (long term or short term) with HIV?

Jasán's Answer

I believe the U=U campaign may have the ability to help people living with HIV stay on ART treatment. With such a profound declaration of hope for our community, we may continue to rise above notions that we should not be sexually active. In addition, such strong support of viral suppression from the NYS Department of Health may help increase and maintain access to adequate and effective NY statewide health services to ensure all HIV infected individuals will not only stay connected and on treatment, but those who have not been engaged in proper health care nor on treatment, will receive access to the services and treatment they need. I think it is also crucial to make sure the promotion of U=U include sufficient education concerning viral suppression and being undetectable. I have encountered far too many people living with HIV who fail to fully understand these concepts.
