The Martin Fisher Foundation
Who we are
The Martin Fisher Foundation is working together towards ZERO new HIV infections, ZERO HIV-related deaths, and ZERO HIV stigma in Brighton & Hove. We have a unique opportunity to eliminate HIV within the next generation. We know around 1:10 people with HIV are unaware of their status. If we can increase HIV testing across the city and reach the undiagnosed proportion, then they can start effective treatment which will completely suppress the virus. Once supressed, or undetectable, the virus is untransmissble. Undetectable equals untransmissable. U=U. By simultaneously improving access to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a tablet people at risk can take to prevent HIV acquisition (a bit like contraception to prevent pregnancy), we aim to move TOWARDS ZERO new infections. And by improving knowledge around HIV and ensuring the whole population has up-to-date information we also hope to move TOWARDS Zero HIV-stigma. Help us in our cause by donating today!
