How can I protect myself and others from HIV?


Both people with and without HIV have things they can do to stop HIV being passed on. Using condoms every time you have sex is one of the best ways to prevent HIV transmission. If you have HIV, take treatment to reach an undetectable viral load so you can’t pass on HIV. If you don’t have HIV, take pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to protect yourself.
