Hi all, I got this notification earlier this week in my Google Alerts and I thought it might be interesting to talk about on here. Apparently HPTN (HIV Prevention Trials Network) just came out with the results of a study they did on the effectiveness of an injectable form of PrEP taken every two months vs. the traditional daily oral kind and apparently it was shown to be just as effective if not more!

I thought this was really great news because it could be a) way more convenient and then b) more private for people who aren't open about their status. I think it'll be a while until something like this is approved or hits the market but still it's great news and progress! What do you all think?
