A snapshot of a moment in the Medical College of Wisconsin's history.
Feb. 1 - The use of antiretroviral medications as HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) can reduce the risk of HIV acquisition in HIV-negative high-risk groups by more than 90% if the pill is taken regularly – an astounding success rate – and yet the number of individuals in this category being prescribed PrEP nationwide has remained low.
Dec. 1 - World AIDS Day is held every year on Dec. 1 to unite people worldwide in the fight against HIV, show support for people living with HIV and commemorate people who have died with HIV. We wanted to use the opportunity to highlight some of the things being done by members of the MCW community to stop the spread of AIDS and help people who have HIV.
