Does PrEP = a new gay sexual revolution?

Even though many health professionals portray PrEP as being "just another tool" to curtail the HIV epidemic, the charged rhetoric used by those for or against it – terms such as "party drug" or "Truvada whore" – suggests otherwise. As noted by a New York Times headline, PrEP raises the dramatic possibility of a new "sexual revolution" for gay men. While the idea frightens and even outrages many people, some advocates (including an increasingly vocal new generation of gay activists) are explicitly embracing the idea of less fear and more sexual choice, if not outright freedom.

Dr Joseph Sonnabend: The WHO's unwise recommendation for gay men

Since we really have relatively very little information about PrEP, and almost none about its use on a population level such a broad recommendation by the WHO is absolutely inappropriate, so maybe faced with increasing HIV infections among gay men, the WHO is simply giving up and proposing an unproved intervention out of desperation.

Investment in HIV prevention research fell US$50 million, or 4 percent, to US$1.26 billion in 2013, due to declining investments by the United States and European government donors, changes in the international development landscape and changes in the pipeline of HIV prevention products in various stages of development and implementation, according to a new report from the HIV Vaccines and Microbicides Resource Tracking Working Group.

New Momentum on PrEP, But Critical Needs Are Overlooked

Oral PrEP should be integrated into comprehensive, high-impact prevention programs for all people at risk internationally, with particular attention to key populations but also for young women and married women who continue to bear the brunt of the epidemic. WHO needs to quickly issue guidance on PrEP for all of the populations that can benefit.

Is Truvada, the Pill to Prevent H.I.V., 99 Percent Effective? Don’t Be So Sure

All of the H.I.V. researchers and experts I spoke with for this article agree that Truvada works well to prevent H.I.V. infection and that its effectiveness is closely tied to frequency of dosing. But they did not all agree about how much to rely on the 99 percent estimate.
