I’m starting a relationship with someone who has HIV. What do I need to know?

Many people who are not living with HIV are in relationships with people living with HIV. 

Today, treatment and care has improved life. Many people living with HIV can live for many years just like those who are not living with HIV. 

You can have a normal relationship with a person living with HIV. 

It is completely safe to kiss and hug your partner. If your partner is taking HIV treatment and has an undetectable viral load, there is no risk of HIV transmission. 

Using condoms is also an effective way of preventing HIV transmission during sex.

If you still have more questions about HIV in relationships, you can talk to your doctor and he or she will respond to all your fears and worries.
