    Preventing HIV is not about one “best” method, he says, but the fact that prevention strategies work best together — such as using condoms and getting tested regularly, or knowing your status and taking HIV medications faithfully.

    This article is incredibly shortsighted. Cost wasn't even mentioned regarding these medications. The average cost is $14k-20k/yr. According to the director of the Adult HIV Services program at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, if you pay $1k/month for your HIV treatment, you're doing really well.

    I doubt many men who know they have HIV willing do not take their medicine. HIV kills and we all know that. The issue is healthcare costs.
