Petition Make PrEP available through the NHS across the whole of the country.
Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a life saving drug which prevents the contraction of HIV/AIDS. In the UK, only Scotland provides PrEP through the NHS.
We demand the government make PrEP available through the NHS across the country. It is a low-cost intervention - there is no excuse.
Use of PrEP reduces new HIV infections among men who have sex with men, heterosexuals, people who inject drugs. We were inspired by our MP publicly revealing his status in parliament on World Aids Day last week.
PrEP is not only beneficial from a public health perspective, but also financially. It should be universally accessible across the UK.
