Steve Gibson, director at Magnet clinic in San Francisco, recently spoke with Daily Xtra’s Nic Kazamia about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).
Gibson says that while his clinic doesn’t prescribe PrEP, it provides advice about the controversial drug. “Our policy here is if you think PrEP would work for you, then you should find out about getting on PrEP,” he says. “It can be a good thing.”
Gibson says a good candidate for PrEP is someone who may not be good at using condoms but is good at regularly accessing healthcare. “We help people find out what it is and what it’s not . . . it may work for you or it may not.”
