    It seems as though there was some information left out. Like listing the types of treatments available for people. what is PrEP, PEP, AZT, etc. I feel as though it would have been helpful for those taking this to know that as well. Thank you. Because they are impressive, progressive strides in HIV prevention and intervention work.
