Why is it important to get linked to care?

Viral suppression is key for people living with HIV. Viral suppression means having very low levels of HIV in the body, even though the virus is still there. Achieving viral suppression by taking HIV medicines allows people living with HIV to have nearly normal lifespans and greatly reduces their chances of transmitting the virus.  Getting in care as soon as possible after finding out you have HIV can help make you less likely to spread the virus to others.
