What a Chemsex Clinic in Paris Taught Me About Saving Drug Users' Lives

Elements of harm reduction are effective and, like PrEP, they are all components of our toolkit. Education, psychotherapy, peer support and a host of other interventions must work in tandem. Can we really afford not to utilize every tool we have to prevent HIV and HCV? For me, keeping clients safe while I work with them to become abstinent is essential. It's not necessary to wait for an HIV and HCV "hotspot" like the one in Indiana to emerge before we take action. Let's check our moral outrage, become fully informed and use every tool possible.

New HIV prevention treatment can only work if perception improves

A De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) professor and his PhD student have urged the medical profession and media to change the way in which a new HIV prevention treatment is represented if they want it to work. He found that men who would benefit most from taking PrEP were being put off by its association with “high risk” people – as they did not want to place themselves in this category.
