Men who are living with HIV or are on antiretroviral (ARV) therapy can safely have a vasectomy. Special arrangements are needed to perform vasectomy on a man who has advanced or severe clinical disease.
Vasectomy does not prevent transmission of HIV.
Urge these men to use condoms in addition to vasectomy. Used consistently and correctly, condoms help prevent transmission of HIV and other STIs.
No one should be coerced or pressured into getting a vasectomy, and that includes men with HIV.
