NEW YORK — A coalition of LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS organizations has called on Facebook to take down ads claiming inaccurate side effects of Truvada for PrEP.
A statement from the organizations said the ads were run by law firms, claiming problems like kidney disease and low bone density.
Last month, GLAAD contacted Facebook Advertising Policy about the misleading PrEP ads and was directed to third party fact checking agencies used by Facebook as arbiters of accuracy in ads. Facebook confirmed the ads would not be removed while new ads, and new profiles behind the ads, continue to appear.
