AHF Ad Campaign Warns Gay Men “There Is No Magic Pill”
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) just revealed “There Is No Magic Pill,” a new national print ad campaign to educate men who have sex with men (MSM) and others about using HIV meds as a way to prevent getting HIV. Specifically, AHF notes that Gilead Sciences likely plans to seek Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for use of its AIDS drug Truvada as a form of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Approving Truvada as a form of HIV prevention for those who are not HIV positive would be a first for the FDA—and a move that AHF and other AIDS advocates believe would set a dangerous precedent.
