Jama Network: Long-Acting Cabotegravir for HIV Prevention—Issues of Access, Cost, and Equity

On December 20, 2021, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved long-acting cabotegravir, the first injectable medication to prevent HIV. Two randomized clinical trials that together included 7790 study participants demonstrated that long-acting cabotegravir was more likely to prevent HIV acquisition than daily oral medication for people at risk of sexually acquiring HIV, including men who have sex with men, heterosexual women, and transwomen.
