Interesting read. Not gound-breaking stuff, 86% effectiveness is in line with other studies, still interesting.

The study covers the first five years of PrEP being freely available through France's public health system. Both daily and event-based PrEP are promoted in France.

A study in France that matched new HIV diagnoses in adult men who had been taking PrEP with diagnoses in men at similar risk who had not been taking it, has found that the overall effectiveness of PrEP in stopping infection in this high-risk population was 60%.

This 60% effectiveness figure included some men who discontinued PrEP for at least three months during the study period and who in many cases did not resume it. PrEP effectiveness in men who did not discontinue PrEP was 86%, similar to that found in randomised controlled trials.

Seems like they wanna stop unsafe activity based on previous published 99% effectiveness used to promote prep and now its time-to decrease unsafe activity after achieving considerable amount of prep users worldwide… pretty clear what they did.
