HRC marks World AIDS day with the release of a new Undetectable=Untransmittable guide and the launch of the #WorkingPositively campaign
HRC MARKS WORLD AIDS DAY: World AIDS Day is a time to recommit to the fight to end HIV and AIDS, to show support for people living with HIV and to remember those we’ve lost as a result of AIDS or related illnesses. Today, HRC is announcing a partnership with the Prevention Access Campaign (PAC) on the release of a new guide about the Undetectable = Untransmittable campaign, or U=U. U=U is a global health and human rights movement, sharing the message that people on HIV medication with an undetectable viral load cannot transmit the virus through sex -- even without condoms.

HRC LAUNCHES #WORKINGPOSITIVELY CAMPAIGN IN PARTNERSHIP WITH IBM, SAP AND DEUTSCHE AIDSHILFE: #WorkingPositively is a campaign that invites employers to commit to being visible role models in their support for HIV-positive employees. The campaign first launched in Germany in June 2019 and has expanded to Austria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and today, the United States. This campaign is a first-of-its-kind program that allows corporations to formally declare that they will work to end workplace discrimination against people living with HIV. More from HRC.
