WHO Suggests All Gay Men Take Anti-HIV Drugs. That’s Fantastic News. 

WHO Suggests All Gay Men Take Anti-HIV Drugs. That’s Fantastic News.  | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

To a casual observer, WHO’s new stance on HIV-preventing drugs (or PrEP) might look like a perpetuation of noxious anti-gay stereotypes. But whatever image problem widespread PrEP use might create is dwarfed by the HIV problem that currently plagues the gay community. HIV is, quite simply, homophobic: The risk of transmission from anal sex is 18 times higher than from vaginal penetration, and condoms break more easily during anal sex than vaginal intercourse. Combine these facts with a clearly irreversible trend toward unprotected sex among gay and bi men, and you have a better picture of the impending crisis that WHO is trying to mitigate.


This bleak picture explains why WHO and the CDC recommend PrEP for traditionally “at-risk” men—i.e., men who have sex with men without consistently using condoms. But why is WHO going a step further and advocating PrEP even for those gay and bi men who do everything right? Here, I have a rather depressing insight to offer. Since I started covering PrEP and Truvada at the beginning of this year, I’ve received messages every few weeks from gay men who ask their doctor for a prescription—and are turned down. Invariably, these men use condoms but would prefer to have a backup plan. And invariably their doctors scold them and refuse to write them a prescription.

Condom campaigns | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Looking at the research, it’s hard to argue for abstinence-only sex education anywhere. The relative rates of unwanted pregnancy and STD transmission between individuals who were in abstinence-only curricula and those who were in programs that taught FDA-approved methods of contraception speak strongly in favor of the latter. Teenagers in abstinence-only programs wait no longer than individuals in more comprehensive programs to begin having sex, but they are 50 percent more likely than their counterparts to become pregnant as teenagers.

A look at Uganda, but with points for all.
