New Data on HIV Among MSM: Better Knowledge. Better Response?

A new analysis of data released earlier this week by CDC officials and researchers from Emory University provided an improved estimate of the prevalence of HIV in 2012 among men who have sex with men (MSM) in the U.S. The analysis is in a report published in JMIR Public Health and Surveillance. The report features prevalence of diagnosed HIV infection in 2012 and rates of new HIV diagnoses in 2013 among MSM in U.S. states, metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs), and counties. The report is further evidence of the huge burden of HIV among MSM. The national estimated HIV prevalence among MSM in 2012 was 15%. The national estimate of diagnosed HIV infection among MSM in 2012 was 11%. The data demonstrate the stark and disproportionate impact of HIV on MSM in the South.

PrEPing Your Capacity

On July 12, 2012, the FDA approved Truvada as PrEP, an HIV prevention medication for individuals who are at high risk for HIV infection. Three and half years later – PrEP has taken the world of HIV prevention by storm as many community based organizations (CBOs), AIDS service organizations (ASOs), and clinicians have begun to integrate PrEP into their care delivery models. In response, Getting To Zero, the AIDS United Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded capacity building initiative, has delivered several trainings and created tools to help organizations understand what PrEP is and how it can be best integrated into their HIV prevention services. Our PrEP 101 has been used to train several organizations about the basics of PrEP and barriers faced by key affected populations regarding access and adherence to PrEP. Here are some common questions about PrEP that we encounter in the field.

Next Steps for PrEP

In cities like San Francisco, where I sit, a relentless focus on increasing the number of HIV-positive people taking anti-retroviral medications early in infection has been primarily responsible for improvements in their health outcomes, and reducing HIV incidence. With new HIV cases numbering some 1,200 a year a decade ago, San Francisco now estimates that there will have been some 330 new cases in 2013. As a group of agencies develop a strategy for “Getting to Zero” in San Francisco, the plan’s architects firmly believe that PrEP could have an important effect on incidence, too.
