SJSU To Zero is an HIV advocacy project based at San Jose State University, engaging with students, staff, faculty, and community partners to promote HIV education and stigma reduction on campus.

We table throughout the semester and sponsor HIV educational programming for student organizations, classes, and for the campus community. Check out our resources to learn more about:

  • HIV risk reduction and prevention strategies
  • New medical breakthroughs in medications
    • PreP: reduce your risk of contracting HIV
    • PEP: reduce personal impact and transmissibility of HIV
  • U=U |  HIV is Untransmittable if Undetectable in a person’s viral load  

undetectable = untransmittable explaining viral loads and contractablility 

Medications


PrEP

PrEP is an HIV prevention pill for people who have a higher risk of acquiring HIV.  Taking one PrEP pill a day can lower your chances of getting HIV by over 99%. That’s more effective than condoms.  

PEP

PEP is an HIV prevention pill that you take if you’re not already on PrEP, and you think you’ve been exposed to HIV. Take PEP within 3 days and reduce your risk of contracting HIV by over 90%.
