Advocates’ Debrief on the Science of Daily F/TAF vs. TDF/FTC as PrEP

October 1, 2019

Please join AVAC, the Treatment Action Group (TAG), The Well Project and the Women’s Research Initiative (WRI) on Monday, October 7 at 9-10am ET for an Advocates’ Debrief on the Science of Daily F/TAF vs. TDF/FTC as PrEP.


This webinar is the first in a two-part series, responding to advocates’ desire to better understand the research to date on F/TAF as PrEP, especially as it relates to its safety profile [compared to TDF/FTC] and the lack of robust data in cisgender women. This issue came into greater focus during an August 7 FDA advisory committee meeting at which Gilead’s regulatory submission of F/TAF for PrEP was discussed and debated.

On the webinar, AVAC, TAG, The Well Project and WRI representatives will be joined by researchers Andrew Hill (Senior Visiting Research Fellow in the Pharmacology Department at Liverpool University) and Monica Gandhi (Professor of Medicine and Associate Division Chief of the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases, and Global Medicine at UCSF/San Francisco General Hospital). They will share their take on the latest research, contextualize the August 7 discussion, and help to inform an advocacy agenda for next steps.

For background, check out AVAC’s blog for a recap of the advisory committee proceedings, as well as TAG and PrEP4All’s joint comment to the FDA.

The webinar will be recorded and posted online shortly after its conclusion.
