  • San Francisco Sees Declines in New HIV Infections and Deaths of People with HIV

  • PROUD and PrEPared – why I’m waiting for Truvada

    A London columnist describes why he wants PrEP now for him and his partner – and why gay men in the UK can't get it yet. "Why should trust between partners, even irregular ones, be impossible in gay life? Why too should there have to be an elephant in the room every time – fear (even low level), anxiety, guilt, shame, all for having a fun and intimate experience with a nicer person? This week my partner and I attended the premiere of the documentary ‘PROUD and PrEPared’ – a look at PrEP and the PROUD study in the UK, which centred on just these issues."

  • Serosorting in the Age of PrEP

    Josh Kruger writes: In the past, HIV+ and HIV- men often sought partners of the same status. Is it still, or was it ever, necessary? Sometimes, I’ll hear HIV-positive people talk about how the best way they can prevent HIV is to only date or have sex with other HIV-positive people. I can understand this line of thinking; I used to hold the same sentiment. Still, the longer that I live with HIV, and the more advances I see being made in science, I think we need to scrap this idea altogether.
