    Already running a headache reading this….the travails of men who have sex with men….if someone starts now to swallow pills, won’t the immune system develop a kind of resistance to them or even make it less effective to combact the HIV should it eventually enter the system. Again, I feel taking this pill will make people to be more careless as they would feel that they now have an immunity over contacting the virus when am sure this pill does not prevent it 100%m I think the best way to prevent it is by practicing the ABC of sex…Abstinence…Being Faithful….Condom Use

    I do agree with them somewhat. My company partners with the government on provision of anti retroviral drugs, so I do know what the picture is. The main problem here is access to treatment for gay men, whose groups cannot be organized and reached because of these obnoxious discrimination.
    This was why my boss was furious with the anti gay law, because progress has been made. Gay men now had social groups and NGOS and reaching them became a little easier until the law came and scuttled it and drove them underground.
    I think we are all sitting on a time bomb because the gay men who become infected will still marry our sisters and daughters most probably and pass it on.
    We should all take charge of our health, condoms are a must. They significantly reduce risk of transmission, you should always have a condom with you just in case!.
    If you haven’t been tested, please go get tested after reading this so you know where you stand.

    Wht the drugs does,is to prevent the viral replication and translation of DNA’s to RNA’s. If the prophylaxis is taken with strict adherence it gives more than 90% protection. People in my profession do take it,not according to WHO advice on MSM but for 28 days, against accidental exposure,like pin prick and surgical blades cuts. The fear of resistance is not unfounded,but exists when not taken with strict adherence or without professional guidelines. In all sincerity,only few percentage of MSM adhere to ABC rule. Therefore its advisable we all consider the new rule,even me its giving it a thought.

    I dont know, but I’d rather advocate wholesome attitudes towards prevention, infection, treatment/coping, instead of ingesting drugs like they’re food. Some ARVs damage the internal organs over time so why would anyone want to take them prior to infection?

    This is in light of a post I wanted to make after an experience I had here in the US a couole of days back. My company organised a blood drive and I carried my JJC spirit from Naija go there because I always donate blood at any opportunity I get. I signed up for the blood drive only to get a form with the question “Have you ever had sex with a man even once since 1977”. I honestly answered yes and when I submitted the form I was told that it was a law that any man who has had homosexual sex is banned from donating blood. You can imagine my shock even in America! Why didn’t they just perform a Test for me. Gay men will always be treated like a plague for a very long time. I read online that some people said they don’t want gay people to donate gay blood. I tire oooo

      I know that law exists and it was promulgated in the 80s at the peak of the gay epidemic among gay men. Some states have repealed it, some states haven’t. So much for “Land of the free, home of the brave”…..*rolls eyes*

    this is everyone’s least favourite topic, nevertheless we cant wish it away!! I personally know from friends who work in the healthcare sector, that STD infection rates have gone wildly out of control, frankly am developing a deep morbid fear of flings. I agree with Absalom, I honestly don’t feel too comfortable ingesting medication on a regular basis, a lot of evidence points to increased risk of organ (esp kidney) damage. we need to be much more vigilant&disciplined about safe sex. The Nigerian govt egged on by an ignorant and gullible as well as brainwashed&idiotic populace shot itself in both feet by passing that obnoxious anti gay legislation, a lot of gay men are scared to access health services and thus infection rates are higher worse still due to the oppressive and intolerant climate, many of them are forced to marry&have sexul relations with women … I shudder to think of the infection rates in years to come.

    This is very disturbing news. The side effects can be worrisome. For WHO to give this directive indicates that the statistics are alarming. Like seriously this is a BIG PROBLEM. How can we help ourselves?

    Ingestion of drugs over and over again will lead diminish the well being of the body system in the nearest future. AB3C(Correct and Consistent use of Condom) is still the best policy.
