HRC wants health insurers to cover Truvada

Gilead, HRCThis weekend the largest U.S. gay-rights organization, HRC, endorsed efforts to promote the use of Truvada, a once-a-day pill to prevent HIV infection.  They are now calling on insurers to provide more generous coverage of the drug.

Truvada’s preventive use has been endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and many HIV/AIDS advocacy groups, but America’s puritanical tendencies alongside valid concerns that the drug might promote risky sexual behavior that won’t protect against other STDs has led to some doctors being reluctant to prescribe Truvada.

I welcome the HRC’s efforts in this area and hope their new policy paper which strongly supports the preventive use of Truvada and encourages health insurers to provide better insurance coverage will help increase awareness of the drug and make it more accessible to all.
