TREATMENT AS PREVENTION
There is good evidence that being on effective HIV treatment reduces (but probably does not eliminate) the risk of transmitting HIV to sexual partners. However, there have not yet been enough studies to quantify exactly how much risk reduction occurs in all situations where transmission is possible.
Condoms are still the safest way to avoid passing on or getting HIV.
Australia has implemented a series of new policies and programs to revitalise our response to HIV, including: Increased testing rates, earlier initiation of HIV treatment and the use of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for individuals at high risk.
