A HIV diagnosis can feel like a lot to process but we want you to know that you're not alone.
Your HIV journey begins with diagnosis and an introduction to a strong network with a wealth of expertise. This network includes your doctor and healthcare team, specialist HIV organisations, and the wider HIV community, who are all there to support and empower you to live the life you want.
You can expect to see your doctor several times in the months after your diagnosis, as you work together to establish a care plan and investigate your therapy options. The aim of consistent treatment with antiretroviral therapy (ART) as prescribed is to reduce your viral load to an undetectable level—what we call viral suppression. This is a cornerstone of HIV care and forms the foundation of the Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) public health campaign.
