Why do people turn down the offer of PrEP?

www.aidsmap.com - "Less than half of individuals diagnosed with STIs or other markers of HIV risk accepted an active offer of PrEP, according to Canadian research published in AIDS and Behavior. Offers of a PrEP referral were made by nurses to people diagnosed with rectal STIs, syphilis, sexual contact with an HIV-positive individual and also those who had used a course of HIV post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP).

However, only 48% accepted the offer of PrEP. Commonly cited reasons for refusal included lack of perceived HIV risk, lack of interest in PrEP, an inability to manage the treatment and negative perceptions of the safety and tolerability of the medication." (Photo: CDC Global/flickr, CC BY 2.0)
