Denver Public Health Joins "Undetectable=Untransmittable" Movement in Recognition of World AIDS Day


Just before World AIDS Day (Dec. 1), Denver Public Health added their support to the Prevention Access Campaign’s Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) movement, an initiative acknowledging the fact that people living with HIV on effective treatment do not sexually transmit HIV.
