Hello community!

Check out the website below, which contains the official statement/report from the CDC regarding the releasing of the new promising findings about how a once a day pill (Truvada), with two commonly used medications in it used to fight HIV, looks to be effective in preventing HIV transmission in HIV-negative men who take it every day.

This has important implications for how we approach HIV in the future, how we negotiate condom use in relationships, and how we look at sexuality and sexual behavior, so read it carefully and with a critical eye?.

Feel free to post your comments on what you think about this!

Happy reading and Happy Thanksgiving!
