Michael Boudin says “walking a red light can get you killed; it can also get you to a job interview on time.”

Prevention and its discontents

In November of 2010, The New York Times wrote, under the headline ‘An AIDS Advance, Hiding in the Open’, about what at first and even second glance appeared to be a major step forward in HIV prevention: Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP. In the war against AIDS, a new weapon has emerged. It wasn’t a secret weapon. It was a well-established treatment pill that has only now been shown to be effective as a prevention pill too. Which raises a question: What took so long? Last week, a cl

PrEP PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a potential new method for preventing HIV infection. PrEP is not yet approved by health officials, and research studies are underway to determine w

IAS Rome conference endsonf very optimistic note because of robust prevention data, but is it worth breaking out the champagne?

IAS ROME 2011: Last day

Two things stand out from the IAS 2011 conference programme. The first is that, overwhelmingly, the most exciting news from Rome will be about prevention...the second is that there is relatively little news here about new antiretrovirals to combat HIV, although what there is is encouraging. Caspar Thomson, NAM's Executive Director This pretty much sums up a lot of the conference. Additionally due to the fact that internet access is rare and expensive, I've had to take a different approach to t

It is an issue that can very well come up during the festivities: how to manage the risks of HIV transmission during sex. There are many ways to reduce risk of transmission and people use the ones they know and feel comfortable with. Condoms are the o
