Results of the Public Health Agency of Canada's Study of the Risk of HIV Transmission

At the request of the Department of Justice, the Public Health Agency of Canada undertook a comprehensive synthesis of the currently available medical science on sexual HIV transmission to determine the risk of sexual transmission between serodiscordant partners (i.e. one individual is HIV-positive and the other is HIV-negative) when one or more of the following are in place: HIV treatment (i.e. antiretroviral therapy or ART), a suppressed level of HIV in the blood (due to effective treatment), and/or condom use.
