HIV Pre Exposure Prophylaxis - Very Sharp Two Edged Sword

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) against HIV infection just got a huge spotlight, in this ABC News article, ABC News Examines Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis For HIV Prevention. It seems that HIV drugs taken within days after exposure to the virus have been shown to reduce the risk of infection. Part of the debate is whether approval of such pills could lead some high-risk groups to forgo safe sex practices such as condom use.

After reading this, I'm wondering if we should all be worried about prEP usage without safe sex practices. Are you worried?
