Above, Daniel Wolfe, director of the Open Society International Harm Reduction Development Program, talks about how police are working to implement harm reduction approaches to HIV prevention with these vulnerable populations.

100% Efficacy for Gays Who Adhered in PrEP Study; But Most Couldn’t Keep Up
This new study is the first to show results from what is known as a demonstration project, which examines medication use outside the rigid confines of a placebo-controled randomized controlled trial. That means these findings are a somewhat better prediction of PrEP’s effects in a real-world setting…..
