The goal of this clinical study is to learn how safe and effective it is to switch to an oral therapy of Bictegravir/Emtricitabine/Tenofovir (B/F/TAF) from Cabotegravir + Rilpivirine (CAB+RPV) in participants living with virologically suppressed human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), meaning participants with HIV RNA levels below detectable levels. The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety of switching to B/F/TAF in virologically suppressed participants unable/unwilling to continue on CAB+RPV intramuscular (IM) injections or wishing to switch to oral therapy through Week 12.
