Working together TOWARDS ZERO HIV


Towards Zero - Our Progress!

Great news! By the end of 2017 we helped achieve:

93% of people living with HIV in Brighton and Hove knowing their status

99% of people being on effective treatment

98% of people with HIV on treatment being unable to pass the infection on to others due to untraceable levels of virus in the blood stream

The Martin Fisher Foundation was founded in 2015 to take forward the work of Professor Martin Fisher. We continue to promote Martin’s ethos of treating people living with HIV with dignity, compassion and respect, and are developing new strategies for effective HIV prevention, treatment and care.


We are working together towards ZERO new HIV infections, ZERO HIV-related deaths, and ZERO HIV stigma in Brighton & Hove. We have a unique opportunity to eliminate new HIV cases within the next generation. We know around 1:10 people with HIV are unaware of their infection and may be unknowingly passing on the infection to others.

If we can increase HIV testing across the city and reach the undiagnosed proportion, then they can start effective treatment which will completely suppress the virus. Once suppressed, or undetectable, the virus is untransmittable.

Undetectable equals untransmittable U=U.

By simultaneously improving access to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a tablet people at risk can take to prevent HIV acquisition (a bit like contraception to prevent pregnancy), we aim to move TOWARDS ZERO new infections.

And by improving knowledge around HIV and ensuring the whole population has up-to-date information we also hope to move TOWARDS Zero HIV-stigma.  Together we CAN make a difference - help us in our cause by donating today!
