Condoms, PrEP, and the use of antiretroviral treatment to prevent HIV
We now have more options when it comes to preventing HIV transmission. Condoms. Undetectable viral load. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). But just how effective are they? In this webinar, James Wilton summarizes the best available evidence on the effectiveness of these HIV prevention methods, and outlines how service providers in Canada might adapt their programs and messaging to incorporate this evidence.
In conjunction with this webinar and in response to a need for clear and accurate messaging about the effectiveness of HIV prevention methods, CATIE has published three new statements:
- CATIE statement on the use of condoms to prevent the sexual transmission of HIV
- CATIE statement on the use of antiretroviral treatment (ART) and undetectable viral load to prevent the sexual transmission of HIV
- CATIE statement on the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent the sexual transmission of HIV
