Los Angeles Officials Seek To Distribute HIV-Prevention Drug to At-Risk Residents
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to develop a plan within 30 days to distribute the HIV-prevention drug Truvada to county residents at high risk of contracting the virus. During the hearing, most HIV prevention advocates praised the move, while others warned that users may not take the drug as directed, which could leave them vulnerable to contracting the virus.
