Statement by Ambassador Eric Goosby, U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, U.S. Department of State and Dr. Rajiv Shah, Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, on the FEM-PrEP HIV Prevention Study


April 18, 2011

“While we are disappointed in the news from the FEM-PreP study, funded by PEPFAR through USAID, other research on pre-exposure prophylaxis is underway. This is the nature of scientific research; some failures lead to other successes. We will continue to work with our colleagues in the scientific community to monitor the results of these and other research studies, in the hope that they will produce new tools for HIV/AIDS prevention.”
