IBTIMES - July 23 - In 2012 'Grindr for equality' was launched to raise awareness of gay health issues and rights. One initiative particularly stood out... its work to inform users about PrEP. PrEP is for people who are at very high risk of HIV. It involves taking a daily combination of two HIV medicines sold under the name Truvada which prevents people from contracting the virus. Truvada for PrEP provides a 92%-99% reduction in HIV risk for HIV-negative individuals. Last year, Grindr conducted a survey which revealed that only 1 in 4 Grindr users was on PrEP in the US. 72% said they were interested in starting someday, but many pointed out a lack of info. "Following our survey, we decided to make PrEP a key priority for 2016", said Jack Harrison Quintana, director of Grindr for Equality. In the most recent survey, Grindr found that ~46% of respondents were now taking PrEP.
