Q and A


Was my partner at risk?

Hi, my viral load was high when I first met my boyfriend and we slept without using a condom for months.. And i was taking my Arvs the way I should have been taking them….and he is uncercumsised.. I just read that chances of him getting infected are high.. Can he be infected already?


Hi there

HIV positive people on effective ART are not a risk to their partners.

U=U means that an undetectable viral load on ART makes HIV untransmittable.

This ie even without a condom.

Please see here:


There would have been a risk when your viral load was high before treatment.

The only way for your partner to know their HIV status if for them to take a test. It would be much better for their health if they find this out now.
