Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the 10th issue of HIV this month 2014!

On 26th October, UNAIDS, AVAC and WHO convened a meeting on the sidelines of the HIV Research for Prevention (HIV R4P) conference to find ways to bridge the gap between PrEP evidence and policy. A meeting debrief is accessible here. UNAIDS also welcomes the stopping of two PrEP trials: IPERGAY as announced by ANRS on 29 October, as well as the PROUD study by the MRC UK on 16 October. UNAIDS released a press statement welcoming the effectiveness of PrEP “on demand” in men who have sex with men and its implications as an additional HIV prevention option.

You may also want to look up Susan Buchbinder’s comment in the Lancet When is good good enough for HIV-1 prophylaxis? She talks about PrEP and asks how uptake is so slow globally.
