Abstract This article reviews the medical literature regarding the association between reduced HIV viremia caused by use of HAART and the risk of HIV transmission, finding that there is a correlation but that it is not absolute. It then examines the behavioral literature, which indicates that there is evidence, though far from conclusive, that, for some, increased sexual risk taking may be related to attitudes and beliefs about combination therapy. The article also considers the message about HIV prevention being presented by public health programs and ways in which health care providers can outline changing circumstances and enable the patient to make informed choices in "gray areas."
