World AIDS Day is a time to remember the devastating losses during the early HIV epidemic, and to celebrate the successes in HIV prevention and treatment.
Advances in HIV treatment have a led to a substantial reduction in transmission, as the medication reduces the level of virus in the blood to a nearly non-transmittable state. Advances in prevention have led to greater awareness of risk, more people getting tested, and more positive persons accessing treatment.
Montana can celebrate the fact 82% of persons living with HIV in Montana have undetectable viral loads, which improves and protects their health as well as their partners.
