Condom-Free Sex?

February 20, 2008 at 10:21 am Leave a comment

Recently researchers at the University of Geneva presented a position paper saying that HIV+ people taking antiretroviral drugs cannot transmit HIV during sex under certain circumstances. Needless to say this caused a storm of controversy among AIDS organizations and activists with many decrying the very thought of thinking about HIV+ people having sex with condoms.

The report “based on four studies said that couples with one HIV-positive partner do not need to use condoms to prevent HIV transmission provided that the HIV-positive partners are adhering to their treatment regimens, have suppressed HIV viral loads for at least six months and do not have any other sexually transmitted infections.”

Regan Hoffman, editor of Poz Magazine interviewed Bernard Hirschel, MD, of the University Hospital, Geneva about the study. You can view the study here.
