Free HIV treatment and prevention

Stopping the spread of HIV is within our reach. We can drastically curtail new infections by providing free needles for drug users and medication to prevent HIV for anyone at risk.

Taking Truvada daily can almost completely prevent HIV, but access to information about the drug and to access to the drug itself is still quite limited, despite being approved by the FDA in 2012.

Pre exposure prophylaxis

“Preventive Medicine” has arrived for those at risk for HIV. New medical strategies are available to help prevent HIV from being transmitted. As futuristic as this concept seems, it is part of a preventive revolution for medical care - where an “ounce of prevention” may be worth more than a “pound of cure.”

PrEP means pre-exposure prophylaxis, and it’s the use of medication - a pill each day - to protect you from HIV. Here’s what you need to know about it.

VICE: The Travuda Revolution, a video series

A drug called Truvada is the first the FDA approved means of preventing HIV infection. If an HIV-negative person takes the pill every day, they’re nearly 99% protected from contracting the virus. Controversy continues to surround the broad uptake of Truvada, but the landscape of safer sex and HIV-prevention changes fundamentally from this point forward, particularly within the gay male community, the population hardest hit by HIV in America. Its ultimate implications for the AIDs epidemic are profound. VICE explores the future of the Truvada and its revolutionary impact on ending HIV/AIDs.
