New Resource: “Let’s Talk About PrEP”
“Though I have a background in public health…I found that the more I heard about PrEP, the more questions I had,” writes Alan Johnson in one of ten articles in Let’s Talk About PrEP, the Summer 2013 special issue of Positively Aware magazine.
As awareness grows about pre-exposure prophylaxis—in which HIV-negative people take a daily pill to help avoid infection—more people like Johnson are looking to understand this relatively new HIV prevention strategy.
Have questions of your own? Chances are, they’re addressed in-depth in this special issue. If you’re looking for info on paying for PrEP, want to learn from PrEP users’ first-hand experience, or simply want to know how PrEP works, there’s an article here for you.
