Who we are and What we do

Prevention Access Campaign (PAC) is a global non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives and ending the HIV epidemic by making Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) a reality for all people living with HIV. U=U means that a person living with HIV who is on treatment and has an undetectable viral load cannot sexually transmit HIV.

 

PAC launched U=U in 2016 by mobilizing global scientists and health leaders to confirm the science of U=U and ignited a worldwide movement of partners to share the message and advocate for universal access. Together, we are changing the narrative for people living with HIV and accelerating an end to the epidemic.

Winnie Byanyima

“Undetectable equals Untransmittable” is a game-changer in our ability to reach the global targets on HIV and end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030. Governments can prevent new transmissions and end AIDS by getting everyone living with HIV on treatment. We must normalise U=U and make it a reality for all to save lives and end the epidemic. #UequalsU!

U=U Is the foundation to end the epidemic.

U=U to me means another chance at life. It’s freeing and it’s awareness. Being undetectable has given me a newfound appreciation and meaning to care about my health.

U=U is an evidence-based message that needs to be further disseminated so that everyone understands the benefits of ARV treatment and U=U. It reduces stigma and discrimination related to HIV. It is also a solution to achieve the goal of “Ending AIDS by 2030.”

Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Thi Lien Huong,
Deputy Minister of Health of Vietnam

Kennedy Mupeli

The U=U message has empowered young men living with HIV  to prioritize safe love and self-care. It’s a beacon of hope, ensuring that they can manage their medication effectively with the knowledge that they cannot transmit HIV to their partners. This assurance fosters a sense of responsibility and optimism, promoting overall well-being and healthier relationships.

The world and people living with HIV need to know about the concept of U=U and the wonders that HIV treatment is doing, we are not a danger to anyone, we need to work together to spread the correct information and end the stigma against people living with HIV

U=U is the reward for people living with HIV. It is the hope and dream for people living with HIV who have been afraid to have love, to have children, to get married. And it is the message for people to get tested and get treated early to stay healthy for themselves and their partners.

The power of U=U should not be underestimated. It’s far more than a public health intervention. It’s about tackling deep-rooted HIV-related misconceptions, stigma, and discrimination. And it’s about championing bodily autonomy and the leadership of people living with HIV in prevention efforts.
