DO YOU KNOW PRE-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS?

#PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. It’s a medicine that can help prevent HIV. Using PrEP can lower your chances of getting HIV from sex by up to 99%.....1/5

RT thread for awareness
WHO CAN USE PrEP?
Anyone who is sexually active and doesn't have HIV can use PrEP. To find out if PrEP is right for you, talk to your nurse or doctor. You may choose to use PrEP if you:

1. Have had anal or vaginal sex in the last 6 months and:
- Have a sexual partner who has HIV.
- Don’t regularly use condoms. - Have been diagnosed with another STD within the last 6 months.

2. Have shared needles, syringes, or other equipment to inject drugs in the last 6 months.

3. Have used PEP multiple times...3/5

The first #AIDS case in the UK was reported in December 1981.
Three years later there were just over 100 cases, almost all of them among gay and bisexual men; over 40 of them had died.
At this point there wasn’t even confidence that condoms offered protection.
1/?
It was the 1980s.
Margaret Thatcher’s Tory Government was in power.
Homophobia in the UK was deeply entrenched. Many felt that the deaths of queers was of no concern.
It was unclear when, or if, the Government would take action. 2/
In 1987, with a still relatively small but significant number of cases observed among heterosexual people, the UK Government launched its first #AIDS campaign.
Billboards across the country proclaimed the message, ‘Don’t Die of Ignorance’. 3/

(1/7) Abro hilo sobre: PLACER y Salud sexual

El #placer sexual está indisolublemente ligado a la salud sexual y los derechos sexuales. El concepto #U=U y la evidencia científica en torno al uso del #Prep nos obliga a hablar de los aspectos positivos de la sexualidad: el PLACER.
(2/7) La salud sexual se define como “un estado de bienestar físico, emocional, mental y social en relación con la sexualidad”. La evidencia es clara, las personas que tienen una carga viral de VIH indetectable sostenida no pueden transmitir el #VIH por vía sexual (U=U)
(3/7) Los enfoques convencionales de salud pública enfatizan aspectos negativos o más bien problematicos de la sexualidad: #ITS, embarazos no deseados y violencia sexual. Esto debe cambiar. El sexo se relaciona con el placer, la diversión o la intimidad, vivas o no con VIH.

Annie Luetkemeyer (@annieluet) reports doxycycline PEP reduces risk of STIs for gay/bi men & trans women on #PrEP (incidence 32% vs 11%) & #HIV+ (31% vs 12%) — even more so for those who used it consistently. @UCSF #AIDS2022

Here's my @pozmagazine report on the @NEJM #monkeypox study. Other reports have covered the key findings, but I'll note for the #HIV audience that 41% of cases were HIV+. The good news is that they did not have worse outcomes.
poz.com/article/study-…
"Whilst people with HIV account for more than 40% of cases so far, it is reassuring that HIV status was not linked with monkeypox severity,” said @drlaurajwaters, chair of the @BritishHIVAssoc.
The proportion of HIV+ people in this case series appears higher than HIV rates among men who have sex with men overall. It's not clear if HIV might be associated with greater monkeypox susceptibility, though it seems possible that immunosuppression could play a role.

Hoy nos levantamos con la que, hasta ahora, es la mayor serie de casos de #monkeypox publicada del actual brote via @TheLancetInfDis. Muchos datos interesantes. ¡Hilo va! thelancet.com/journals/lanin…
El estudio describe 54 casos de #HSH diagnosticados en clinicas de ETS de Londres. Esto tiene algunos inconvenientes: no hay mujeres (que pueden padecer y padecen #monkeypox exactamente igual y con el mismo mecanismo de transmisión que los #HSH y varones heterosexuales)
Y se escapan algunos datos que no se recogen de rutina en las bases de datos de estos centros: sobre todo los gastrointestinales. Y es que algunas de las complicaciones que estamos viendo en 🇪🇦 se deben a obstrucción parcial faríngea por contagio oral pasivo)

as promised, here is the tale of getting #MyFirstR01 & like a good psychologist i'll go over the content (what it's about) & mostly the process (how I did it) & give some professional development advice as i am wont to do. buckle up because i wrote too much & am dysregulated 1/n
it is a large 5 year project to update an adolescent HIV prevention program I worked on as a postdoc in 2012-2013. The updates will 1) reflect contemporary HIV prevention knowledge, bc TONS has changed, 2) focus on encouraging HIV testing/PrEP uptake (not just condoms!) 2/n
3) make it more 2022, technology-wise (it was only delivered using text msg), 4) make it more gender-inclusive (previously was GBQ cis boys; I plan to expand it to trans & gender diverse teens who may benefit from HIV testing/PrEP) - read summary here bit.ly/36bqGKi 3/n

Just a friendly reminder @moderna_tx told the @SECGov that the @US_FDA defines #mRNA as gene therapy. And called it an unprecedented new category of #medicines tho they really want that #vaccine classification anyways for liability protections & fear the public wouldn’t take it.
They know the #COVID19 #vaccine isn’t a vaccine but human #gene #therapy.
The @US_FDA #fda reaffirmed their definition of modified viral #nucleic acid that alters #CELL Jan 30th 2020 #COVID ImageImageImageImage

1/3 Six shots a year: FDA = approved the world's 1st injection 2 prevent #HIV infection. Why is this NB?
1. It can lower your chances of getting HIV by close to 100%
2. It works better than HIV prevention pills as efficacy doesn't rely on your ability 2 take a daily pill
#PrEP
2. When will SA get #HIV prevention injections?
1. The manufacturer Viiv Healthcare 1st needs 2 apply with @SAHPRA1 4 approval
2. Once approved, whether SA uses injections in the public sector will depend on cost (if it makes economic sense vs the price of HIV prevention pills)
3. What is SA using currently for #HIV prevention?
1. Other than behaviour interventions such as sex education programmes that promote condom use and postponing sexual debut, we use the #HIV prevention pill.
2. This @bhekisisa_MG video tells you more: bit.ly/3yJJQkc

We have a drug that protects from #HIV. True or False? #ph260720
My friend Steve texted me last year asking how he could convince his partner Ed to see a doctor.

Steve said, “Something weird is happening to him. He can’t walk, his speech is slurred, and his mood changes. He’s a totally different person.” #ph260720 #HIV
I asked him why Ed is reluctant to see doctors. Steve replied, “He has always hated seeing doctors because he feels judged by the health system.”

This is the story of Ed’s experience and how we could have prevented his death from #AIDS 8 weeks later. #ph260720 #providerbias
