ACT UP New York Demands Better Local HIV Prevention Efforts

ACT UP New York protested outside the Queens offices of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene demanding the agency improve its HIV prevention efforts, according to an ACT UP statement. The group wants the city health department to publicize pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to at-risk communities, to fund local HIV prevention efforts despite federal budget cuts and to release accurate data on HIV rates. Such data would underscore the need for increased resources for HIV prevention.

one awful stat the NYCDOHMH claims is that only 14% of HIV+ MSM in NYC dont know their status, national average is 20%. however that claim is based ONLY on ER visits to Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx over a 2 month period in 2009...withOUT demographic breakdowns, MSM lumped in with str8s. other data suggests it's really 40%. They abandoned funding HIV Prevention n actively stonewall the rollout of PEP and PrEP...fearing demand! meanwhile, young MSM/Trans r infecting at Apocalyptic rates! ACT UP!!
