Who gives a shit about Fred Phelps? This, for me, is the headline of the day:
No-one with an undetectable viral load, gay or heterosexual, transmits HIV in first two years of PARTNER study
More from AIDSMap:
The second large study to look at whether people with HIV become non-infectious if they are on antiretroviral therapy (ART) has found no cases where someone with a viral load under 200 copies/ml transmitted HIV, either by anal or vaginal sex. Statistical analysis shows that the maximum likely chance of transmission via anal sex from someone on successful HIV treatment was 1% a year for any anal sex and 4% for anal sex with ejaculation where the HIV-negative partner was receptive; but the true likelihood is probably much nearer to zero than this. When asked what the study tells us about the chance of someone with an undetectable viral load transmitting HIV, presenter Alison Rodger said: "Our best estimate is it's zero."
The obvious takeaway: universal testing plus universal treatment equals the end of the HIV pandemic. (Via JoeMyGod.)
