Px Wire July-September 2013, Vol. 6, No. 3

Px Wire is AVAC’s quarterly update covering the latest in the field of biomedical HIV prevention research, implementation and advocacy. This quarter, Px Wire highlights three recent developments in the field and key issues for each: the World Health Organization (WHO) prequalification of PrePex, a nonsurgical voluntary medical male circumcision device; the positive result from the study of daily oral tenofovir as PrEP for HIV prevention in people who inject drugs; and new WHO guidelines on the use of ARVs, which recommend antiretroviral treatment for all HIV-positive people with CD4 cell counts of 500 or below.
