HIV viral load and transmissibility of HIV infection: undetectable means non transmissible

Many evidences exist on undetectable HIV viral load – which means less than 200 genomic copies/ml signifies that a patient will not transmit infection to other person. This small. but powerful review article, insists that all persons with HIV should adhere to treatment and have their viral load controlled, as a measure of public health. If such measurable is done, as widely as possible, we can stop HIV epidemic.
