Ending HIV offers a combination of tools to gay and bi guys to prevent HIV transmissions. It responds to the rising rates of HIV by empowering men with information and inspiring them to take action. It asks them to stay safe by using condoms and raises awareness about PrEP as an option that needs to be made available. It also puts focus on testing more often, particularly for those who haven't been playing safe, and educates about the benefits of starting treatment early for those who test positive. Men (cis or trans) who have sex with men can order condoms for free from their site and they’ll be mailed in unmarked envelopes.
