  • Letter to the Editor: SFGN HIV Editor Blasts Headline ‘Loyal Lovers Live Longer’ 

    The main headline “Loyal Lovers Live Longer” on the cover of The May 8, 2019 Issue of SFGN obscures the importance of a recent HIV study. The study did not show that “loyal lovers lived longer.” It showed that Undetectable equals Untransmissible (U=U). When antiretrovirals suppress HIV, current health is maintained, and transmission becomes impossible. The study said nothing about “loyalty,” or monogamy. The problem lies in the main headline not in the story.
