The drug, Truvada, is the first medication intended to prevent HIV infections in people having sex with infected individuals.
IT JUST GOT REAL
What good news for the world.
Remember when this made the news weeks ago and US news outlets didn’t find it worth reporting?
This should have like, 1,000% more notes.
This is amazing.
Are you telling me that those Ryan Gosling cupcakes have 45,000 notes and this post hasn’t even reached 5,000?
And it was on this day that this appeared on my dash, and I said “Damn, finally some good news!” and reblogged the hell out of it.
Remember you still need to practice safe sex while using this. The drug trail tested people who were taking other precautions (ie condoms) with this new pill. Though folks who were exposed to someone HIV positive and then took this pill had a less likely chance of contracting HIV. But the side affects can be pretty bad. Also the pill should not be used regularly unless you have a partner with HIV. Either way this is amazing news! Next step, finding a vaccine.
