Good, I hope this prevents a lifetime of disease for as many people as possible.
I can't take this much sanity in a news story!
Just stop it Canada. It's this stuff that will make trumpcare look especially foul.
I wouldn't bother looking at the comments for this story on CBC, it makes me have less faith in humanity and grateful that their crazy is mostly limited to posting on FB.
just use whatever treatment magic johnson is using
"Does it cover dire AIDS? It's like AIDS, only dire."
Although this sounds great at face value, there seems to me to be a few issues in the implementation.
Firstly, what group/s exactly are classed as “higher risk of HIV infection”? Would these groups include the likes of IV drug users and people who already engage in high-risk sex?
The pills need to be taken daily to be effective. To me that would rule out regular IV drug users who are likely of.... diminished responsibility.
It also says:
> In studies, use of the medication was associated with increased rates of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and abdominal pain compared with a placebo. Kidney side-effects were also higher with the drug.
>The medication does not protect against other sexually transmitted infections and prescribing physicians will continue to urge patients to use condoms.
So it makes you feel like shit and you still have to use condoms? So that reduces the risk of infection also. And increases the likelihood that someone will not take it, as it makes them sick.
