Truvada or generic

Does anybody know a doctor - or clinic - in Hua Hin who will prescribe Truvada (or generic) as PrEP prophylactic against HIV?

The drug may (or may not) protect you against HIV but it will certainly not protect you against the numerous other STD's out there . Many of whom are drug resistant.

To avoid, or at least reduce the probability of, getting HIV/AIDS?

There are more reliable ways to avoid contracting HIV, clearly, and PrEP can't guarantee such a high level of protection. You're obviously comfortable with high levels of risk, but it's wanton recklessness putting your faith in something that might be nothing more than compounded powder paint in a counterfeit box.
