For the first time, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has recommended that clinicians offer pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, to patients at high risk for HIV infection.
According to the CDC, PrEP can reduce the risk for HIV in high-risk patients by up to 92% when taken consistently. Recent findings showed that a rapid, targeted rollout of the medication in Australia led to a 25% decline in new HIV diagnoses in just 1 year among men who have sex with men.
