PrEP Programs Gain Momentum As Solution To AIDS Epidemic

Huffington Post: New Momentum on PrEP, But Critical Needs Are Overlooked
Mitchell Warren, executive director of AVAC

“…PrEP [(the use of a daily medication that reduces the risk of HIV infection)] is an option for many people, not only for gay men. … Global health leaders should be working, now, to develop and fund programs to provide access for anyone who can benefit. Oral PrEP should be integrated into comprehensive, high-impact prevention programs for all people at risk internationally, with particular attention to key populations but also for young women and married women who continue to bear the brunt of the epidemic. WHO needs to quickly issue guidance on PrEP for all of the populations that can benefit…” (7/17).
