Word on the Street: PrEP Use by Gay and Bisexual Men

October 16, 2012

Well, I think that PrEP is an incredibly exciting new advancement. I think we have great data in gay and bisexual men. Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of information about how best to use PrEP in women, and I think that that's a very important, and an essential, area for further research. We've really got to know, not only how do we use it, but how often should we use it? How should it be prescribed? And, who should be managing it? And that's true for gay and bisexual men, as well. There's a whole lot of implementation questions that I think are really important. But, as a women's advocate, and an HIV-positive woman, I am definitely very concerned that we don't have as much information as I'd like to have on how best to use PrEP and where it's most applicable.
