One in four people living with HIV in the United States are women. So why is HIV prevention medication overwhelmingly only targeted at men who have sex with men?
Contrary to some initial reports, the World Health Organization did not declare that all men who have sex with men should start taking PrEP as a means of preventing HIV. Instead, the group wants this population to work with their health-care providers to assess their personal risk and determine whether PrEP is right for them.
PrEP works when used properly. So why don’t women use it?
