My struggle to take anti-HIV medicine

I am a 30-something African-American gay man in New York. HIV is constantly on my mind. Not so much my HIV-negative status. Rather, even though I watched my parents die of AIDS when I was young, I still struggle with whether I should take the drug Truvada, a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) that can protect almost completely against HIV.

Dear AIDS Activist

Thank you for your dedication to improving the lives of people living with HIV infection and to efforts to end an epidemic that has gone on far too long. The work you do is even more impressive now, when HIV/AIDS is no longer the cause célèbre it once was and our red ribbon has joined a growing rainbow of good causes and works....Today, the science of HIV can greatly benefit from your true co-production. That means actually demanding to help create research, not just be a mostly mute study team member whose presence allows a box to be check-marked. In an increasing number of research networks, patients are at the drawing board, designing and implementing research. How ironic it is that in HIV research, where the roots of such co-production can be found, we are behind the times.

Chemsex Has Always Been With Us

Not before time, the gay press in London, realising we have a dangerous drugs-and-sex scene here that is killing gay men, has finally started to cover it in an analytic, compassionate and sober way (pun intended). I’m pleased about this, and pleased by this powerfully written piece by David Stuart (see https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/chemsex-will-defines-period-gay-history/#gs.3r47mag). No one has done more to help and rescue gay Londoners who have got lost in the maze of chemsex, and help them achieve self-respect and structure in their lives. And yet I disagree that Chemsex is anything new. We gay men have been always been furtive about the sex we sex we want and do, and have always sought private, intoxicated spaces to do it in.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
