Highs and Lows of Viral Loads


Positive youth are invited to come together to explore our viral loads and the expected highs and lows that come with that! We will also be chatting about the undetectable=untransmissible (U=U) message. Through casual conversation and activities with two YouthCO peer facilitators, youth will learn why whatever our viral load counts may be, we are all superheroes!

This event is *FREE* and open to youth living with HIV and/or Hep C from 16 to 29 years old.  During the event, we will offer the opportunity to host part two with youth who are HIV-negative friends, partners, or family members of positive youth!

We will be hosting this event online, using our virtual meeting platform - Zoom. To participate, we need access to a device connected to the internet with display, sound and mic capabilities like a laptop, desktop with headphones or a smartphone.

The Zoom app is free, and be downloaded to a phone, computer, or tablet! We can make a free account, or join without an account. The link to join will be sent out to confirmed contacted participants.

We would be happy to chat about how we can make this event more accessible! If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please contact Jessica@youthco.org for more information.

Will you come?

YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
