Prevention strategies are critical in halting the spread of HIV infection. Knowledge of HIV status, condom use, avoidance of injectable drugs, limiting the number of sexual partners, and use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) are all integral components of effective HIV prevention. Unfortunately, such interventions are currently not being utilized to best effect, as the racial disparities that have been present from the start of the epidemic persist. Identifying patients likely to benefit from HIV-prevention strategies and providing these individuals with access to these interventions is crucial.
