Opportunities and Challenges of U=U

U=U (undetectable equals untransmissible) refers to how individuals with HIV who have undetectable viral loads cannot transmit HIV. Join DC Engage, led by HealthHIV, for a webinar that will provide an in-depth exploration of the U=U concept, with a focus on its application to harm reduction.

This webinar will review challenges involved in achieving viral suppression and maintaining undetectable viral loads, particularly for people who use drugs. Providers also will gain an understanding of potential opportunities for promoting activities that contribute to harm reduction strategies in order to reduce barriers and increase drug user health.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate enhanced knowledge of U=U (undetectable and untransmissible). 
  • Describe the limitations to achieving viral suppression and undetectable viral loads. 
  • Discuss the opportunities and best practices to promote activities that support viral suppression and undetectable viral loads.
