timmm55 said1 man on PrEP got HIV, from a partner who was failing his medications (not taking his meds). Yes he became positive, but the antivirals made him undetectable....so the drugs still work even though HIV got through because of an acquired resistance.
No, not just ONE man, just one case documented so far. There will be more--many more. PrEP is effective, but condoms--when used correctly are even more effective. Hell, why not do both?
timmm55 saidPrEP works (at least 96%, that has not changed)
That number will likely change as more and more documented cases arise of it not working.
timmm55 saidTasP works (98%+).
I read 96%, but close enough.
timmm55 saidCondoms work (70%).
Whoa, from whose ass did you pull that number? The correct statistic is 98-99%.
But to answer the original post...
It's simple: promiscuity and a lack of forethought in sexual activity, mostly. (No condoms.)
In theory condoms might be 98 or something like that. Consistent condom use in anal sex stops 70% of HIV infections, study findshttp://www.aidsmap.com/Consistent-condom-use-in-anal-sex-stops-70-of-HIV-infections-study-finds/page/2586976/
Condom efficacy with 100% useAmongst all men having anal sex, men who said they used condoms 100% of the time were 70% less likely to acquire HIV than men who never used condoms, and 68% less likely than men who said they sometimes used them.
Condom efficacy was consistently higher in EXPLORE: it was 86% for all anal sex, 87% for receptive anal sex and 76% for insertive anal sex compared with 59, 63 and 55% in VAX004.
Why the big difference? One possibility is that because EXPLORE was a behavioural intervention, it may have helped participants use condoms better and have fewer ‘accidents’ than in VAX004, which monitored condom use but did not intervene.
These figures are derived by comparing HIV incidence in men who said they always used condoms with men who never used them. What about the men who sometimes used them?
"It's simple: promiscuity and a lack of forethought in sexual activity, mostly. (No condoms.)"
You put a lot of emphasis on condoms, and puritanical ethics, too much in fact. The OP was right IMHO when he said "I blame racism, homophobia, lack of awareness, lack of proper education, lack of proper equality and inner human prejudice."
It's easy to blame someone by simply saying they are too promiscuous.
Too much is what someone else does, right? That's basic slut shaming.
