Treatment as Prevention is an HIV prevention strategy pioneered by Dr. Julio Montaner and his team at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS (BC-CfE).
The concept that antiretroviral therapy (ART) can impact HIV transmission has been under consideration since ART first emerged in the 80’s. While it has been clear that biologically ART can decrease HIV transmission, there has been a longstanding concern this effect could be overwhelmed by increased risk behaviors, commonly referred as behavioral disinhibition, risk overcompensation or therapeutic optimism.
