HIV prevention drug Truvada receives funding

TheBody.com learned of this issue in December when David Holland, M.D., M.H.S., an associate professor of medicine at Emory University and director of the Fulton County PrEP clinic in Atlanta posted in a thread on Facebook that the only patient he wasn't able to prescribe PrEP to was a Publix employee. We offer generous health coverage to our eligible full-time and part-time associates at an affordable premium and are committed to the health and well-being of our associates and their families.

Though it was not disclosed whether the Publix employee identified as LGBTQ, some outlets speculated that the company was discriminating against gay and bisexual men, who remain disproportionately susceptible to HIV infection, by refusing to cover PrEP.

Publix appreciates the concerns shared by our associates and customers. After a public outcry on the Publix PrEP refusal, the company stated that it is working to expand its health plan's coverage for PrEP "as quickly as possible".

New Zealand's government agency that decides which pharmaceuticals to publicly fund, PHARMAC, announced a year ago it wanted to fund PrEP as a HIV-preventative drug. "For them to not know that they operate in a region that carries the bulk of the epidemic at this point, that most of the new cases in the United States occur where their grocery stores are, and for them not to provide that protection for their staff is irresponsible, at the very least".

"Publix has locations predominantly in the South, where HIV disproportionately affects the population, making this decision all the more impactful and necessary", Mary Beth Maxwell, HRC's senior vice president for programs, research and training, said in an email statement.
