Kenya passed a major milestone in the fight against HIV on May 4, 2017 when it launched a nation-wide initiative to bring oral PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), antiretroviral drugs for preventing HIV, to the people who need it.

Fall in new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men (MSM) at selected London sexual health clinics since early 2015: testing or treatment or pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)?

This coincided with high HIV testing volumes and rapid initiation of treatment on diagnosis. The fall was most apparent in new HIV testers. Intensified testing of high-risk populations, combined with immediately received anti-retroviral therapy and a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) programme, may make elimination of HIV achievable.

‘Fathers’ Explores a World Where AIDS Never Killed Our Queer Forbearers (Video)

Gay Mexican director Leo Herrera is directing Fathers (aka. The Fathers Project), a sci-fi documentary that explores how society might be different if the AIDS epidemic had never happened. The film mixes real life and fantasy with a cast and crew including historians, artists and performers who imagine the cultural and political influence that we could have had had our “fathers” (the queer men who proceeded us) had not become part of a lost generation.
