MUST WATCH: Vice Tackles "The Truvada Revolution" In New Documentary Short Series
If you watch only one thing this week, let it be Vice's profound docu-short on the "Truvada revolution." In the new report, Vice applies its award-winning journalism to one of the most important topics of this generation. Check out intimate stories from all sides of the Truvada as PrEP debate, including notorious opponent, Michael Weinstein of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
A drug called Truvada is the first FDA-approved means of preventing HIV infection. If an HIV-negative person takes the pill every day, he or she is nearly 99 percent protected from contracting the virus. Controversy continues to surround the broad uptake of Truvada, but the landscape of safer sex and HIV prevention changes fundamentally from this point forward—particularly within the gay male community, the population hardest hit by HIV in America. In this episode of VICE Reports, VICE explores the future of the Truvada and its revolutionary impact on ending HIV/AIDS.
Bravo, Vice, for the illumination!
