As HIV prevention stalls, gov’t provides free PrEP

The United States has seen little progress at the national level in preventing new HIV cases over the past half decade, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released December 3. To help address this shortcoming, the Department of Health and Human Services announced a new program — called Ready, Set, PrEP — to provide the prevention pill at no cost to those unable to pay for it. The program is a component of the government’s “Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America,” which President Donald Trump announced during this year’s State of the Union address. The initiative aims to reduce new HIV infections by 75% in five years and by 90% in 10 years.
