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

Actually, I'm very happy that PrEP is here, because I think it's all about choices. And, I think that having a choice is a wonderful thing. I think that, for those people that are very committed, and those people who are going to be adherent to taking Truvada once a day, this is a great thing. It's going to reduce infections by somewhere between forty and fifty percent in gay men. And, I think, the other thing is, the FDA has approved this, and, thus, by approving it, most, if not all, insurance companies that cover fully-insured patients will have to cover this under their insurance policies. My other feeling is my opposite feeling of, what I don't want to see, is I don't want to see people rely on PrEP and be very complacent about safer sexual behavior and I don't want to see us go back to where we were in the eighties, the early eighties.
