PrEPosterous gender health inequality?
HIV prevention strategies for women used to be as simple as ABC. Abstain. Be faithful. Condom use. Fortunately this retro paternalistic approach fell out of favour by the mid 2000s. It became apparent much more was needed than simplistic behavioural change messages. Jump forward 10 years and PrEP (Pre Exposure Prophylaxis) a highly effective “game changer” comes along. Women should get excited right? Well, perhaps not – it’s not yet clear if we’ll get our hands on it.
