Call for Papers for special issue on Working with HIV Today'


Since the HIV pandemic began, social workers and others have been involved in the delivery of a range of services to people living with HIV. Recently published scientific studies(PARTNER 1 and PARTNER 2) suggest that people with a sustained undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV sexually. Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) has been vital to stigma reduction. U=U has implications for the delivery of care and treatment, research, education, and practice in social work, nursing, occupational therapy and other professions working in the area of sexual health.
