Treatment as prevention (TasP) provides effective protection against HIV transmission, just like PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) and condoms. Treatment as prevention means that an HIV-positive person that is in successful treatment cannot transmit HIV. The following conditions apply:
- The viral load (the amount of viruses in the blood) of the HIV-positive person has been classified as “undetectable” for at least six months and is examined by a specialist at regular intervals (approx. every 3 months).
- HIV medication is taken correctly and regularly.
- Treatment as prevention only protects against HIV transmission, not other STIs. Condoms can provide additional protection against these.
- Condoms, PrEP and treatment as prevention each reliably protect you against HIV and can be combined with each other.

Get tested for HIV, Hep C and other sexually transmitted infections (STI) at least once a year! Swabs on the tail, ass and throat give security to find everything that does not belong there! Vaccinations against hepatitis A and B are possible.
