ABSTRACT
The author argues that those untested pose the biggest risk of transmitting Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). According to the author, there is evidence to suggest that an undetectable viral load means HIV-infected men have a much lower potency of HIV in their blood and semen. He expresses concern about the lack of knowledge of young gay men about safer sex. He calls for the promotion of the fact that those who have been tested, are HIV positive, on treatment and have an undetectable viral load are much less infectious than those who are not.
