We're excited to announce the first U=U Tour in New Zealand. Kicking off this November, the U=U Tour is an opportunity to learn more about the U=U movement, Undetectable Viral Load and their enormous potential for ending HIV stigma and transmission.
U=U stands for Undetectable=Untransmittable, an international campaign supported by NZAF, Body Positive, Positive Women Inc and INA Foundation. This means that if someone is living with HIV, is on treatment and has had an undetectable viral load for more than six months, HIV is not passed on through sex – even if condoms aren’t used. The movement works to dismantle HIV stigma, improve the lives of people living with HIV, and end the global HIV epidemic.
Each event will have a panel discussion including Bruce Richman, the NYC-based founder of Prevention Access Campaign and the U=U movement. Bruce will be joined by Nic Holas from Australia's The Institute of Many, as well as NZAF staff, medical specialists and HIV+ speakers from around the country, thanks to Positive Speakers' Bureau.
Free HIV and syphilis testing will be available on the night.
