By getting on and adhering to medical treatment, HIV-positive individuals can achieve viral suppression (a very low level of HIV in the blood, also referred to as undetectable). HIV is not curable, but lowering the amount of HIV in the body can keep a person healthy, help them live longer, and greatly reduce thier chances of passing HIV on to others!
