HIV Prevention Pill for Heterosexuals at Risk Too
August 10, 2012
CDC on Thursday issued updated interim guidance on the use of once-a-day Truvada to prevent HIV, saying providers should consider prescribing it for heterosexual women and men who are at high risk of infection. U.S. health officials previously advised doctors to give Truvada only to high-risk men who have sex with men (MSM).
