Bruce Richman is the co-founder and executive director of Prevention Access Campaign (PAC). His primary focus at PAC is on the dual benefits of treatment for the health of people living with HIV and their sexual partners. He has been living with HIV since 2003, and has been undetectable since 2010. When Richman learned from his doctor in 2012 that because he was undetectable he could not transmit the virus, it changed his life dramatically. Since then, he's been committed to breaking through the HIV stigma and politics in public health to share this knowledge in the hope that people with HIV and their partners will live happy and healthy sexual and reproductive lives.
