Undetectable equals untransmittable. It's a short phrase that HIV researchers and prevention experts believe represents one of the biggest steps we've ever seen toward eradicating HIV.

The scientific consensus behind “U=U” means people living with HIV who respond to antiretroviral medication and achieve an "undetectable" status do not sexually transmit the virus.*

At the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, there’s a new addition to its grounds: an eight-foot tall pyramid. On two sides of the structure, a number – 30,190 as of last week – is prominently displayed. That’s the number of Atlantans who are HIV positive. The number will be updated every Friday by the artist behind the work, Matthew Terrell.
