Washington Post

In a move hailed by advocates as pivotal in the 30-year battle against AIDS, the Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved for the first time a drug for preventing infection by the virus that causes the disease.

The FDA greenlit the drug, Truvada, for people at high risk for HIV — namely, men who have sex with men and partners of people who carry the virus.
