Background:
Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is marking a milestone in contemporary HIV prevention technologies and strategies as it is promoted to specifically targeted HIV negative to prevent them acquiring HIV. This is taking shape via new and on-going international and national policies aimed at achieving a post-AIDS future. Inevitably PrEP is emerging as intrinsically bound to the production of new discourses on mutual care, pleasure, gender, bodily integrity, sexual risk and transgression. PrEP has revived interest in the targeting of female, transgender and male sex workers and ‘men who have sex with men’. It raises important practical questions about how HIV prevention is accessed and what policy and programming are needed to support it. As a shift to biomedical technology it also raises ethical questions and brings into focus the relationship between bio-politics and sexual subjectivity. In this context bio-medical/public health investment in HIV and AIDS work globally, the relationship between communities, sexualities and bodies is being radically re-narrated. and re-organised. 

Speakers and other participants will share perspectives from various academic disciplines and organisations working closely with the introduction of PrEP in different settings. It will provide an opportunity to collectively think about the implications of PrEP in the context of social and political-economic transformations, international development, and ‘post-AIDS futures.’ Contributors include
