Sex, Sports and Snark: New on AVAC.org

October 25, 2016

Dear Advocates,

Do you love a little cheeky commentary? Are you looking for a chance to contemplate sex and sexy bodies? Are you amazed and thrilled that the Chicago Cubs have arrived in the World Series for the first time since 1945 with a chance at their first World Series win since 1908? Between sex, sports and snark we hope we’ve hit (at least) one of your passions! Please take a look at some our recent blog posts. Featuring new resources and dispatches from last week’s HIV Research for Prevention Conference (HIVR4P), these are fresh takes on urgent issues. And they’re fun, too. Read on for more. 
 
Who do you love? Finding treasure at the last day of R4P
Adolescent girls and young women of western Kenya, young African men making the decision to get circumcised, the CAPRISA256 antibody, advocates from across the globe and a dear colleague were among the treasures unearthed on the last full day of R4P.

Debate This: What do HIV prevention and elections have in common?
Political campaigns and HIV prevention have more in common than you might think—check out our blog to see some of the ways how. 

Spreading Heat at R4P: AVAC’s daily round-up
In a city with one of the great pro-PrEP, pro-sex PrEP marketing campaigns—PrEP4Love—it was perhaps appropriate that early in the conference a lot of the updates that got us thinking and talking were PrEP-related—and the run-down of many of those is here.  

Baseball, Guts and Glory: R4P kicks off in Chicago
The conference kicked off with Chicago Cubs baseball fever and new cure-related findings that were equally hot in the media. Check out our take on these early data—and what they mean. 
 
Px Wire
The latest issue of Px Wire, released last week, provides specifics on some hot topics for advocacy before, on and after World AIDS Day (coming up on December 1). 
  • What should advocates do and know when PrEP guidelines development comes to town? Some handy tips and lessons learned from recent experiences in East and Southern Africa. 
  • Where is the money? Check out our centerspread charting trends in HIV prevention research and development investments. It’s excerpted from the full report, HIV Prevention Research and Development Investments, 2000-2015 (more below).
  • What’s coming in the trials pipeline? We’ve prepared a quick reference guide to prevention research in the pipeline.

Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures: DIY PrEP in Europe
A new report from the PrEP in Europe Initiative discusses the state of PrEP access in Europe [spoiler alert: it’s limited]—home to the fastest-growing HIV epidemic in the world—and how people are securing PrEP in the current environment.

Not To Be Missed: New report on funding for prevention research
The latest report from the Resource Tracking for HIV Prevention R&D Working Group shows that overall funding for HIV prevention research and development (R&D) has remained essentially flat for over a decade. Check out the blog for our take and what it means for an increasingly active field (see Px Wire above for more on what’s in the pipeline). 

Best,
AVAC
