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.

Declining investment could slow research and rollout of new HIV prevention options

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.
