Even if that was true, surely any health care system ought to strive toward reducing the number of people with a serious infection such as HIV even if that meant accepting a higher number of people with mostly treatable infections such as syphilis, gonorrhea and the like. Bizarrely the suggestion has also been made that if gay men stopped using condoms courtesy of the risk-reduction the pre-exposure prophylaxis affords them, they would eventually be as sloppy with the medication itself. It goes without saying that there is zero evidence to support this contention. As to the increased risk-taking alluded to a moment ago, available research suggests that pre-exposure prophylaxis goes hand-in-hand with only a slight increase in the likelihood of reduced condom use .
