Media Outlet: The Huffington Post

If we are to end AIDS among women in America, preventing new HIV infections is essential and there are a range of tools that can help, including targeted education, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), male and female condoms, and harm reduction services for people who inject drugs. To maximize reductions in new HIV infections, a high impact strategy must be employed to use the most efficient, evidence-based, cost-effective and scalable prevention methods to target those at highest risk in the most affected areas. Women and girls, particularly vulnerable groups such as African-Americans, sex workers, women who inject drugs, and transgender women, need better, targeted information, as well as nondiscriminatory HIV prevention and treatment programs.
