Gilead 'Discover' Trial

The main purpose of this study is to try to find out if a new drug, called emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide (F/TAF), is as safe and will work as well as Truvada (TDF/FTC) in protecting us from getting HIV. F/TAF is available in the form of a pill. Researchers do not yet know if this drug will work to protect people from getting HIV. This is why we are doing this study.
