    exactly Lego - and it should be remembered that a) this gel is a LONG way off yet as it is still only in the human test phase and also b) it is never going to be a replacement for condoms in regard to safer sex but it's being suggested at groups such as MSM were maybe one long term partner / husband etc has HIV and the other does not to help reduce the risk of cross infection, it will never if course protect from all the other nasties out there and should most certainly not be thought of as a replacement for normal condom use.

    was there any definitive follow-up on this? I assume failure because there is little on google after the date of this post.

    Anyone seen these? what is the cost? will the boys participate in this test?

    HIV self-testing kits are available at pharmacies from today under a new measure to help Thailand meet its commitment to end HIV-Aids by 2030.

    This experimental gel predates PrEP and has probably been made redundant by it

    Yes, you are probably right.... but how many boys are using PrEP? the HIV rates are still very high... and karma still rules them.

    on my last visit I used PrEP. I did go bareback with 2 long-term boys (one of which we both got a local HIV test) and one regular Thai man (not Money Boy).

    I did come home with chlamydia.....
