Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) Provider Survey
The survey is now closed for data analysis. Results will be presented at the 2019 United States Conference on AIDS (USCA) during the U=U in Practice: Results from a Midwest HIV Provider Survey session on September 7, 2019 from 9 - 11 a.m.
About the Survey
The Minnesota Department of Health and the Midwest AIDS Training and Education Center (MATEC) have partnered to survey HIV care providers in the 10-state Midwest region about using viral suppression for sexual HIV prevention, a concept that has gained recent attention and popularity due to the Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) campaign.
Survey participants will include physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and allied health professionals in the HIV treatment community.
