Very different levels of PrEP uptake and adherence in three US cities, demonstration project finds

One of the first studies of open-label pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for at-risk gay men in three US cities shows that although the proportion of those initially offered or seeking PrEP who ended up taking it was similar in all cities, the amount of interest in it differed substantially. It also found substantial differences in adherence between the cities, possibly due to a younger population in one, but lower adherence was not associated with lower motivation to take PrEP.
