BRUCE RICHMAN is the founding executive director of Prevention Access Campaign which launched Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U), a global community-driven movement with over 960 official partners in 100 countries sharing the revolutionary but largely unknown fact: people living with HIV on treatment with an undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV to sexual partners.

In 2012, nine years after his diagnosis, Bruce learned U=U. After recognizing that people with HIV and the public were not being informed about this groundbreaking science, he joined with activists and researchers to create a consensus on the science and to ensure it reaches the people it was intended to benefit. U=U is based on the principle that all people with HIV have a right to accurate and meaningful information about their social, sexual, and reproductive health based on science not stigma.

Bruce and the U=U campaign have been featured extensively in national and international media including The Washington Post, CBS Evening News, China Global Television, CNN, The Guardian, Daily Mail, CBC Canada, South Africa Medical Digest, JAMA and The Lancet. Bruce was honored as Healthline magazine’s HIV “2017 Person of the Year”, received the 2017 Partnership Award from the United States National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD), and was recognized by Plus Magazine as “#1 Most Amazing HIV+ Person of 2018.” In 2019, Bruce received the Red Ribbon Award from the people with HIV network of Vietnam, and the Shelby Dodge Visionary Award from AIDS Foundation Houston. He was named #15 of the 100 most powerful LGBT New Yorkers and one of the 100 most powerful people in health by New York City & State. In 2019, the United States Congress honored Prevention Access Campaign and U=U with official congressional recognition.

Bruce has worked in philanthropy and social change for over twenty-five years developing cause-related initiatives for high profile people and brands. He received his master’s in education from Harvard Graduate of School of Education and his law degree from Harvard Law School.
