Bringing sexy back

How new technologies in HIV prevention and treatment are facilitating healthier sex lives


Infectious diseases specialist Dr Kevin Rebe talks about the latest technological developments shaking up HIV prevention and treatment. Exploring new frontiers including treatment as prevention, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), this month’s health science café will reveal how a healthy sex life is possible in the context of HIV.

Each of our health science cafés feature a 15 minute talk by a specialist on new breakthroughs in treatment and prevention. This will be followed by a casual Q&A. All journalists and media practitioners are welcome.

Make a quick stop after work at our health science café to get the information and contacts you need to report on HIV.

Designed with journalists’ tight schedules in mind, these cafés offer you the opportunity to connect with an expert in HIV and get targeted information—all in the time it takes to grab a quick bite and something to drink (and that's on us).
