However, a number of leading clinicians argue that the results should not deter care providers from prescribing PrEP for patients who are most at risk for HIV.
Epidemiologists are using a combination of molecular surveillance and tuberculosis-style contact tracing in hopes of helping local health departments curb HIV transmissions.
Some have expressed concern that, as PrEP use increases in the U.S., so will the transmission of other STIs. A new study pushes back against that worry.
Alternate PrEP guideline recommendations; partner notification and onward HIV transmission; shifting causes of death among HIV/HCV-coinfected people; correlates of lower adherence among people on methadone maintenance.
