    Disparities in PrEP awareness, access, and uptake are stark in the United States, and play out along lines of race, gender, age, and geography. While we see increases in PrEP uptake overall, these metrics tend to mask the fact that the people who most need PrEP are not to be found in those numbers.

    Despite a dynamic research and development (R&D) pipeline for prevention products, male and female condoms remain the only multi-purpose prevention technologies (MPTs) currently available.

    The 2023 Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit is coming to Las Vegas, April 11 – 12. Now in it’s seventh year, the Summit’s continuing focus has been on the implementation of biomedical tools in our prevention and treatment efforts to ultimately end the HIV epidemic in communities. To make real impacts, it’s important to learn about and from different communities. This year’s Summit will lean into sex and pleasure. Since sex is the main way that HIV is transmitted, we need to focus on consensual sex in all of its iterations. We’ll talk about kink, fetishes, sex work, etc.

    Over the past two decades, HIV advocates have engaged in hard battles for equitable access to HIV/AIDS drugs and prevention options and have had some big wins. The process of these negotiations has led to strong relationships that have enshrined certain equity provisions as standard in clinical trials and manufacturing of HIV drugs. Through these battles, we’ve learned clear lessons on the necessity for such agreements and what’s required to secure them.

    As the number of cure-related clinical trials grows, so does the number of people experiencing month-long delays in viral rebound. A very small handful of participants remain off therapy long after the trial ends. These individuals who can control HIV without therapy after an intervention are known as controllers.
