Who Are Heterosexual Women Acquiring HIV From? Are Heterosexual Women's Partners A Hidden Population?

We need to dare to address the unspoken dynamic of how women acquire HIV. In safe, informal settings with women, they often explain how they contracted the virus from their husband and or long term partner. Women explain how they did not know at the time or until much later that their partners had been bisexual or gay. Women do not readily discuss this dynamic and often there is silence in public spaces

What does the PrEP decision mean for heterosexuals?

NHS England recently announced it was pulling the plug on an 18 month process to decide whether or not to fund pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV. While NHS England have offered a sop of £2 million funding to provide PrEP to 500 gay men over two years, there has been no mention of provision for heterosexual women and men at all, let alone those from African communities.

Heterosexuals at High Risk for HIV Don't Test Enough

Heterosexuals engage in sex that puts them at risk for HIV, but do not get tested at high enough rates. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued its most recent National HIV Behavior Surveillance System (NHBS) report about high-risk heterosexuals, which focuses on data collected from individuals in a series of major metropolitan areas.

In heterosexuals, transmitted HIV strains often resemble original infecting virus

A new study has found that even though HIV diversifies widely within infected individuals over time, the virus strains that ultimately are passed on through heterosexual transmission often resemble the strain of virus that originally infected the transmitting partner. Learning the characteristics of these preferentially transmitted HIV strains may help advance HIV prevention efforts, particularly with regard to an HIV vaccine, according to the scientists who conducted the study.

HIV prevention pill for heterosexuals at risk too

U.S. health officials said Thursday that doctors should consider giving an AIDS prevention pill to women and heterosexual men who are at high risk for getting the virus. The government previously advised doctors to give the once-a-day pill Truvada to high-risk gay and bisexual men only. However, more than a quarter of new HIV cases each year are heterosexuals, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "That's not a portion of the epidemic we want to ignore," said Dr. Dawn Smith, the CDC physician who was lead author of the new guidance.

Together, we can make it happen

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
