An American study has found a strong correlation between new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men (MSM) and their use of online hook-up sites and apps.
Researchers from Brown University, The Miriam Hospital, and the Rhode Island Department of Health found that more than 60 percent of MSM diagnosed with HIV in the US state of Rhode Island in 2013 reported meeting sexual partners online in the preceding year.
Pharmacists can sell take-home HIV testing kits, says Pharmacy Council of South Africa Registrar and CEO Amos Masango.
According to Masango, a May 2015 decision by the council effectively quietly removed the ban on pharmacist sales of HIV self-testing kits. The decision comes almost one year after the council gazetted a draft plan to remove the ban. The proposed lifting of the ban was warmly received publicly, Masango told Health-e News.
The recent decision by the Medicines Control Council to approve the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in South Africa is a major development and has been welcomed by OUT LGBT Well-being.
PrEP is a new prevention option for HIV negative people who have high risk sex or simply wish to further protect themselves from HIV infection. It is also recommended for HIV negative people who are in a relationship with an HIV positive partner.
