Getting Black Gay Men Interested In, Adhering to PrEP
Poz Magazine is an award-winning print and online brand for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
In February 2016, Poz published this article about the success of a PrEP intervention for Black gay men. Researchers in HPTN 073 successfully recruited 226 black gay men for a study to monitor effectiveness of PrEP use combined with counseling. The results of this study are important because black gay men continue to have the highest incidence rates of any other racial and behavioral group in the United States. PrEP could be a useful biomedical intervention to decrease new infections among the men of this group.
