  1. While it is important that we recognise the damaging mis-information promoted by some groups like this, we should also come to realise that this is coupled with medical language barriers. When a person has been taking their medication in the way their clinicians advise, if it is effective, they will be told by their doctor that their viral load is ‘undetectable’. To some people, this translates as ‘not there’. Coupled with advise from their church that prayer can cure their HIV, this may lead them to believe that prayer has worked and they can stop taking their medication.

    As well as tackling damaging advice from the organisation mentioned above, we also need to address the language used by the medical profession to properly explain to people living with HIV that ‘undetectable’ does not mean ‘cured’.
