Response from Dr. McGovern

Please refer your HIV questions to the HIV forum. I take care of hepatitis questions with and with HIV infection.

I will only say that a major study just came out showing that the risk of HIV transmission in couples who are discordant (one HIV+ the other HIV-) shows that HIV treatment reduces the risk by 96%...
