Once in a Lifetime HIV Hope After Covid

14/07/2020

Juice FM, the Belfast based LGBTQ service radio for Ireland, reports from the Rainbow Project which says that we have a once in a lifetime chance to break the chains of HIV transmission, and get the forward infection rate towards zero. Gavin Boyd from the project said: “Mr Boyd said: "One of the big problems with HIV testing is that there’s a lag between someone’s infection and the chance of that being picked up by a test.

"We can now track down every single new infection that has possibly been contracted in the last three to four months and get those people onto a treatment pathway straight away so there’s no risk of the infection going any further. "If we can just take that out, get everyone tested, get everyone treatment who needs it - that’s getting towards zero transmission."
