Serious side effects like liver damage?? Why, when you can wear a condom?

It's not new per se, just a combination of antiretrovirals in one pill, and as such it's more feasible to use for pre-exposure prophylaxis. And even that is aimed at very specific groups, e.g. South African prostitutes or high-risk, promiscuous western gay men: the former often can't get their clients to use condoms and the latter don't want to/don't bother using them. So the idea is that at least taking Truvada they'll protect themselves and anyone they have unprotected sex with.
