Molecular epidemiology of HIV-1 subtype B reveals heterogeneous transmission risk: Implications for intervention and control
The impact of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) depends on infections averted by protecting vulnerable individuals as well as infections averted by preventing transmission by those who would have been infected if not receiving PrEP.
