HIV Plus magazine reports that the Food and Drug Administration has approved Truvada as a preventative drug for reducing the risk of sexual transmission of HIV.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi responded by saying, "The FDA’s historic decision to approve use of an antiretroviral drug for HIV prevention by individuals at high-risk of infection provides us with an effective new weapon in our fight against HIV/AIDS".

The announcement came just two weeks after the FDA approved at-home rapid HIV tests.
