Growing Government Initiatives for Free Medication of HIV is Driving the Market Growth

Since the WHO recognizes HIV as a global pandemic that has caused many deaths in the United States, it has compelled the government of the United States to update medical infrastructure and improve HIV regulations. The US Department of Health and Human Services' Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) in the United States mission aims to reduce new HIV infections by 90% by 2030, with a target of fewer than 3,000 per year.

For instance, the US Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announced USD 99 million in 2021 for implementing the EHE campaign in the U.S. with Ryan White's HIV programs to improve the healthcare infrastructure, including HIV care, treatment, medication, and essential support services. In 2019, Gilead Sciences announced that they are likely to donate Truvada for PrEP to the US CDC to support the government initiative for End the HIV Epidemic. Gilead Sciences announced that they would provide 2.4 million bottles of Truvada to the CDC annually for uninsured citizens of the U.S. Thus, growing government initiatives for the free medication of HIV have propelled the growth of the United States PrEP market.

Increasing Population of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) and Adoption by Society Represent a Lucrative Opportunity

Nearly 70% of the people living with HIV are bisexual men or homosexuals. This is generally because contracting HIV through anal sex is ten times more likely than through vaginal contact. Thus, anal sex has a higher transmission rate, which means that the chances of contracting HIV increase in bisexual men or homosexuals.

LGBT awareness has grown to a point where the younger generation is more likely to identify as LGBT than heterosexual. The latest update on gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual finds that 5.6% of the U.S. population (mainly adults) identifies as LGBT in 2020. This includes one in six adult members of generation Z.

Thus, the rising population of LGBT and their acceptance by society has led key players to develop more effective drugs.
