We are in an age where pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and understanding that an undetectable viral load means HIV is untransmittable (U=U). What does this mean to be living with HIV in Australia today? This week Cal Hawk talks to Daniel and Anth about their experiences living with HIV for a “Positive Voices” episode. Anth and Daniel are two members of Living Positive Victoria’s Positive Speakers Bureau.  The Positive Speakers Bureau members are the human face of HIV and help to reduce fear, myths, stigma, and discrimination and to more fully understand the realities of living with the virus. The Positive Speakers Bureau is run by and for positive people who are highly trained public speakers and presenters.

Whether you want more info about U=U, want a better understanding of stigma, or what to hear from other members of the Positive Speakers Bureau, head to: livingpositivevictoria.org.au.
