Community Consensus Statement on the Use of Antiretroviral Therapy in Preventing HIV Transmission

NAM and EATG, Europe’s community group for people with HIV, have launched a consensus statement, for endorsement by the HIV community, on using HIV treatment to prevent the transmission of HIV.¬†
ART drugs if taken as prescribed can effectively render people non-infectious. ¬†This treatment has not already ended the HIV epidemic for several reasons including lack of access to drugs, no global consensus on who should get them, ignorance about the prevention benefits of ART, stigma against people with HIV, the criminalisation and persecution of groups vulnerable to it, and people’s justifiable fear of compulsory or coercive HIV testing and treatment.
