Ending HIV

Ending HIV


Imagine a future where there are no new transmissions of HIV in New Zealand.

We now have the tools to end new transmissions of HIV in New Zealand and we can do it by 2025 – but we need to work together.


  • all gay, bi and queer guys who are sexually active are staying safe – condoms still provide the most effective barrier for preventing the transmission of HIV and other STIs.
  • those same guys test at least twice a year, more often if they’re not staying safe.
  • people living with HIV treat as early as possible, to protect their own health and, if possible, reduce their viral loads to undetectable so the risk of passing on HIV during unprotected sex is radically reduced.
  • everyone fights HIV stigma – uncompromisingly.


  • Keep yourself informed about HIV – how it is transmitted and what prevention tools are out there.
  • Take responsibility for reducing HIV transmission risk when you are having sex, no matter what your status. 
  • Be mindful of how you communicate. When you are chatting to someone on an app, at a club or anywhere else, consider whether or not the words you are choosing could be stigmatising.
  • We're always looking for hands-on community support - sign up as a volunteer for Ending HIV.
