Clinical Question  Does treating the HIV-infected partner in a serodiscordant couple reduce the risk of HIV transmission to the uninfected partner?

Bottom Line  Compared with serodiscordant couples without treatment, couples in which the infected partner is treated with antiretroviral therapy have a lower risk of HIV transmission.
