There is much to celebrate about PrEP. It is one more powerful tool in the fight against the HIV epidemic, like treatment, and U=U that ensures zero transmission risk. Other exciting recent advances include event-driven and injectable PrEP for gay and bisexual men who do not want to take a pill every day.
