Interesting news on the HIV prevention front! It seems as if WHO (the World Health Organization) has officially gotten onboard with HIV-prevention drugs as an additional precaution for people at risk, even if you are responsible and consider yourself safe. From Slate Mag:

Last week, the World Health Organization recommended unequivocally that all HIV-negative men who have sex with men take HIV-preventing drugs like Truvada. The new guidelines build on a similar proposal from the CDC, but they go a step further, suggesting that even gay men who regularly use condoms should take these drugs as a backup measure. If doctors and men who have sex with men follow these guidelines, WHO estimates that about 1 million new infections will be prevented.

For more info on the announcement, the issues some safe-sex abiding folks are facing when asking for prescriptions from their doctors, and other questions answered, visit Slate‘s article here.
And FYI people — that doesn’t mean you can go out and be unsafe and irresponsible without any repercussions! DUH! Prove that terrible stereotype wrong by keeping it safe!
