Abstract Transmission rate modeling estimated secondary infections from those aware and unaware of their HIV infection. An estimated 49\% of transmissions were from the 20\% of persons living with HIV unaware of their infection. About eight transmissions would be averted per 100 persons newly aware of their infection; with more infections averted the higher the percentage of persons with viral suppression who can be linked to care. Improving all stages of HIV care would substantially reduce transmission rates.
