Beliefs about better treatment for HIV leads gay men to engage in riskier sex

A survey in the US notes a consistent increase in the occurrence of condomless anal sex among men, as well as a rise in how many sex partners they have.

Why Nobody's Funding the HIV-Prevention Strategy Ten Times More Effective than PrEP

"I've seen funding go towards PrEP, and reluctance to fund programs that promote the full benefits of viral suppression," Bruce Richman says. "Funders don't want to do something that's risky.
