This little blue pill is TIME magazine's "Top Medical Breakthroughs". In 2010 a study called iPrEx which shows that taking a pill a day, called Truvada, can reduce the risk of contracting the virus by an average of 44% in men who have a physical relationship with men at risk for HIV.

Now that the dust has settled a little, I wanted to delve a little deeper into the results and highlights some important points about what we do and do not know about PrEP.
1. The pill is already available for the treatment of HIV and should not be used for prevention without the supervision of a physician. Pill used in this study is called Truvada and are widely used to treat people living with HIV.
2. The pill works (in part)
This study showed an overall 42% reduction of HIV infection while taking Truvada. How it's calculated? 42% reflects the differences in the number of infections among people who were in the placebo group vs those who received Truvada.
3. The pill is expensive
Make very expensive. At a cost of about $ 12,000 per year in the United States, one of the biggest questions yet to be answered is who will pay for it.
As mentioned above, the study showed a decrease of 42% in overall infections in the group that received Truvada, in combination with a comprehensive package of prevention services.
