I read today that Los Angeles will be making Truvada available in an effort to reduce HIV infections.
We have heard the numerous debates and positions on PReP and we are solid in the position that every one must take responsibility for their sexual behaviour and that PReP does not give you carte blanche to go out and fuck around bare back without risk.
Truvada will not protect you from Hepatitis, Gonorrhea, Syphillis and may other STIs.
Truvada contains two of the many drugs that HIV-positive patients take: tenofovir and emtricitabine. This means of prevention is called pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and according to the CDC, it can be up to 92 percent effective when taken correctly.
If taken inconsistently, however, the efficacy is much lower.
Federal guidelines recommend PReP for HIV-negative individuals who have a high risk of contracting HIV, such as those who are in relationships with HIV-positive partners.
The CDC recommends those that take PReP still get tested for HIV every three months.
I will go on record and state that being on PReP and reducing the possibility of HIV infection is important. HIV is very expensive and taxing in many other ways on the system and those that are infected.
If we could reduce the amount of new infections of HIV we could make huge advancements in eradicating the disease.
