STD rates sharply rise in U.S. says CDC – Will misinformation from PrEP critics prevail?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just published a report on the rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis in 2015, finding the highest number of case reports on these infections in 20 years and a steep increase over the last reported period in 2014.

Arts and his collaborators discovered that a group of infected women progressed very slowly to AIDS and discovered that nearly all were infected with a specific HIV-1 strain, called subtype C. This HIV-1 strain replicates very poorly and very slowly in patients making it the "wimpiest" subtype of the deadly virus despite also being the most dominant form of HIV in the world, predominantly found in Southern Africa, Eastern Africa, India, Nepal, and parts of Brazil and China.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
