Bob Leahy: Are organizations passing up on the chance to end HIV stigma and inform people living with HIV who are durably undetectable that they can’t transmit the virus? What people are saying

The science-based U=U message is everywhere - but some aren’t biting.

The images accompanying this article are from campaigns around the world informing people living with HIV that if their viral load is durably suppressed, they can not transmit the virus to others. There were no Canadian images used because no such campaigns exist in Canada.  It’s getting heated People living with HIV have never played a greater part in designing and implementing prevention messaging. In just a few months, the U = U message from the Prevention Access Campaign, arguably the

PositiveLite.com's Bob Leahy shares his thoughts with The Graying of AIDS, a project which documents the lives of those aging with HIV in words and pictures, about what surviving the plague years feels like and what older HIVers bring to the table.

Long term survivors speak out: The Graying of AIDS interviews Bob Leahy

While in Durban at the International AIDS Conference this past summer. I stopped at a booth in the Global Village. A series of stunning black and white images caught my eye. The booth was the work of The Graying of AIDS http://www.grayingofaids.org/ the photos by Katja Heinemann the Project Co-Director (above)  and a visual journalist. Later I sat down with the project’s Naomi Schegloff for an hour-long interview. I came back later and my portrait, seen here, was part of the exhibit.. Won

The Undetectable = Uninfectious doubters

published: October, 18, 2016 Written by // Bob Leahy - Publisher Categories // Activism, As Prevention , Health, International , Sexual Health, Treatment, Living with HIV, Opinion Pieces, Bob Leahy - Publisher

If your virus is undetectable you can’t transmit the virus. But why do some living with HIV and their service providers struggle with that concept, or even deny its truth? Bob Leahy reports on the reasons why.

The Undetectable = Uninfectious doubters

The history I’ve spent the last couple of months arguing that undetectable equals uninfectious. Now, I shouldn’t have to argue that, because the science tell us so. The world’s leading HIV experts and savvy organizations are saying it too. Still, there is resistance to embracing this, the most significant science breakthrough since antiretrovirals hit the scene back in 1996. The power of those antiretrovirals to not only return people to good health but stop the transmission of HIV has

CPPN joins PositiveLite.com in endorsing Prevention Access Campaign’s Undetectable = Uninfectious message

Bob Leahy writes about the growing support in Canada for a science-based grass roots movement which has the potential to empower people living with HIV like never before, reduce stigma and contribute to the fight against criminalization

CPPN joins PositiveLite.com in endorsing Prevention Access Campaign’s Undetectable = Uninfectious message

Call it uninfectious, call it untransmittable. Bottom line is that HIV is not what it used to be. If you maintain an undetectable viral load you are not putting anyone else at risk. You cannot transmit the virus. That science-based conclusion is unusual in that its messenger is, this time, not conventionally funded AIDS organizations but those most affected - people living with HIV, like New York City’s Bruce Richman, a poz gay man whom I interviewed for PositiveLite.com here. He’s the c

Why some organizations are slow to adopt the undetectable=uninfectious message

Undetectable = uninfectious so why are some organizations and educators so slow to disseminate the facts? From the UK, Megan DePutter delivers a penetrating analysis

Why some organizations are slow to adopt the undetectable=uninfectious message

Lately on PositiveLite.com there has been quite a bit of buzz about the PARTNER study - not only about its fantastic findings, but also about the HIV organisations who are slow to acknowledge the full implications of the results. There is even a campaign - Prevention Access Campaign's Undetectable = Uninfectious -  to change this. Recommended reading on the topic has to include ‘Will HIV Ever Be Safe Enough For You’ which is one of my new favourite blog posts by Mark S. King, who hit the

He’s shy, he’s unassuming and he’s a dynamo when it comes to HIV advocacy. Kevin Maloney talks about RiseUpToHIV, his new video campaign What’s Your Positive Message and (reluctantly) the man behind it all

Bob Leahy interviews Kevin Maloney, the man behind RiseUptoHIV

Bob Leahy: Let’s talk about the RiseUptoHIV campaign which you are well known for, particularly for your T-shirts. Kevin Maloney: Yes, it was a two-pronged campaign. The name “RiseUptoHIV” came to me in the middle of the night. I was thinking about how I was rising up to the challenges in my life at the time when I was diagnosed in 2010. The “No shame about being HIV-positive” story telling campaign started in 2013 – people would send me their stories and photos, which I would pos

After a long time away, Megan DePutter is back and despite the many changes that have happened, it's a welcome return.

Megan returns to PositiveLite.com and says

The fact that I’m writing this at 10:00 at night speaks volumes. Because when a job is just a job, you switch it off at the end of the day, go home and forget about it. But my work in HIV isn’t just a job. It’s much, much more than that. And I am so thankful I found my way back here. My last blog post at PositiveLite.com was shortly after I moved from Guelph, Canada, to Glasgow, Scotland. I wrote my last post sitting at a cafe in the West End of Glasgow, not really sure where this mov

I’m sitting inside a McDonald’s on a hot Saturday afternoon and I’m thinking to myself just how different my life is. I just left the Reef where my gallery is located. Imagine that, I’m a gallery owner. This is pretty crazy when you think that I once stood outside this location begging for something to eat during my 29 months of homelessness. Today I simply walked in and paid with no problem whatsoever. Not only that, as I sit here I’m recalling the nights I slept in the dirt in fro
