Why do so few Canadians know about a free pill that can prevent HIV?
December 1 is World AIDS Day. It marks 30 years since HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, was first identified. While we have come a long way from the time when there were no treatment options for HIV, the latest statistics still paint a bleak picture. Professor Patrick O'Byrne (School of Nursing) explains why that is and how the HIV PEP - a treatment used to prevent new infections - can make a difference.
