Working together TOWARDS ZERO HIV

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.

TOWARDS ZERO HIV

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 HIV 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 supress the virus. Once supressed, or undetectable, the virus is untransmissble. Undetectable equals untransmissable. 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!
