Majority of Vancouver men remain unaware of HIV prevention drug, study finds (BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS)
A BC Centre for Excellence study has found that approximately three-quarters of Vancouver men who have sex with men remain unaware of a proven-effective prevention method for HIV.
The study, published in February in AIDS and Behavior, found that over 70 percent of gay, bisexual, and men who have sex with men (MSM) don't know about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).
Only 20.9 percent of HIV–negative participants and 26.5 HIV–positive participants knew about PrEP.
