Gov't Warns: Homosexual Men are Huge HIV Risk

Yesterday, President Obama's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued (yet another) report warning that sexually active homosexual men (men engaging in anal sex) are at high risk of transmitting HIV, compared to men and women who have normal sex posing little or no threat of HIV transmission; but a woman IS at risk if she allows an HIV-infected penis in her rectum.

-- From "CDC Recommends PrEP for Americans at High Risk for HIV" by Jessica Firger, Newsweek 11/24/15

The recommendations were published Tuesday in Vital Signs, a monthly report from the CDC. Based on national data, the CDC estimates that 25 percent of sexually active gay and bisexual men, nearly 20 percent of adult intravenous drug users and less than 1 percent of sexually active heterosexuals should be counseled on the use of PrEP. These numbers are based on lifestyle factors that put a person at higher risk for an HIV infection such as engaging in unprotected sex with multiple partners. The daily pill for HIV prevention that has been found to reduce the risk for infection by more than 90 percent for men who have sex with men and by more than 70 percent among patients who inject drugs.

PrEP was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2012 for high-risk patients, but the CDC reports that many primary care physicians are unaware of the drug and its high efficacy for HIV prevention. An unpublished online national survey of health care providers, conducted in 2015 found 34 percent had not heard of PrEP.

"PrEP isn't reaching many people who could benefit from it, and many providers remain unaware of its promise," Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the CDC, said in a press release. "With about 40,000 HIV infections newly diagnosed each year in the U.S., we need to use all available prevention strategies."

"PrEP isn't right for everyone," said Eugene McCray, director of the HIV/AIDS prevention division at the CDC. "No single method is, but it's right for some people, and when the men and women at high risk adhere to PrEP or whatever prevention methods work for them, we can make gains in national efforts."

The CDC said it is taking a number of steps to increase PrEP use. These steps include publishing resources to educate and advise health care providers, a hotline to answer their questions, and increased funding to community organizations to improve access to the drug.

While important, PrEP is one of a number of HIV prevention strategies. Others include treatment to suppress the virus in people with HIV and encouraging consistent and proper use of condoms. Other prevention strategies include reducing risky behaviors . . .
