This discussion aims to de-mystify HIV prevention at the same time as accounting for its complexity. The article argues for a combination of solutions to intensify HIV prevention and overcome political, sociocultural and logistic barriers. 

The premise here is that action and funding have not necessarily been directed to where the HIV epidemic is or to what drives it. The authors emphasise the structural determinants of HIV as well as the need to stimulate demand for HIV prevention.
