HIV research and advocacy groups release recommendations on uptake and expansion of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis in California

It’s time to drop gay Atlanta’s barriers to PrEP

PrEP, prophylactic treatment that prevents HIV infection, should be made accessible to every single person in the U.S. who is at risk for HIV infection. This should be the primary goal of gay activism in the next decade. There are certainly many other valid goals for ASOs, and they should be lauded for their successes. There is more to AIDS activism than simply viral load and PrEP adherence. But if the CDC prediction of half of us getting infected is accurate, nothing will seem more important 28 years from now than preventing these cases from happening in the first place. Our community’s disgrace this century will be its failure to embrace the greatest bridge to an HIV vaccine we’ve ever encountered.

Gilead applies for PrEP approval in Canada

Gilead has applied to Health Canada for Truvada to be approved as PrEP – HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis. Truvada is not approved as PrEP yet in Canada which means doctors must prescribe it off-label and it is not yet on any provincial drug plan formularies outside of Quebec. Gilead Pharmaceuticals has now formally submitted its application to Health Canada for Truvada to also be approved for a preventative indication. Much of this can be attributed to a petition launched in April by several HIV and gay men’s health organizations in Canada, calling on Gilead to apply to Health Canada.

Where Do I Fit In? PrEP and Transgender Men

There aren’t guidelines about Truvada-based PrEP use for transgender men who have sex with men because there haven’t been any studies specifically looking at how the drug works in our bodies. In fact, major PrEP clinical efficacy trials have not included transgender men in any of their study populations to date.

PrEPosterous gender health inequality?

PrEP (Pre Exposure Prophylaxis) is a highly effective “game changer". Women should get excited right? Well, perhaps not – it’s not yet clear if we’ll get our hands on it.
