WHO Wants for All Gay HIV-Negative Men to Take PrEP

In a controversial move, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that all men who have sex with men (MSM) should take pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in order to reduce their risk of contracting HIV, writes The Atlantic. PrEP is the practice of HIV-negative people taking AIDS medications as a means of HIV prevention.
