Four years into using Oral PrEP, one user shared his testimony to encourage adherence among young men who were recently initiated on Oral PrEP. This was during a literacy session at Nzvimbo Clinic, one of the programs conducted by the Zim- TTECH project in Mazowe. The disclosure was an eye-opener for young men to adhere to Oral PrEP to keep them safe from HIV infections.
“Taking pills at the same time as my HIV-positive partner has been helpful throughout my PrEP journey… and I will continue taking the drugs as long as I feel that I am at risk of contracting HIV”, he said. His testimony stimulated discussions as participants loosened up and began to share their own experiences which then motivated the young ones who were amongst the participants during the literacy session.
Another participant highlighted the advantages of using Oral PrEP especially if one has multiple sexual partners. He urged other participants to religiously adhere to Oral PrEP to remain HIV-negative. He pointed out that Oral PrEP is an interesting option that reduces the risk of HIV and boosts sexual confidence.
