Response to NHS England announcement on PrEP

We are disappointed that PrEP will not be available on the NHS in the near future. Nonetheless, we are glad that at least 10,000 people will be offered PrEP... We hope that the trial will build on evidence from PROUD, instead of merely repeating the important work that has already been completed.

NHS England fudges PrEP access and delays on-demand access to PrEP by years; blocks doctors from prescribing PrEP now

It is difficult to be impressed with this compromise. Rather than meet the real need of people currently at highest risk, it will further delay access to an option to prevent HIV transmission that has clearly passed the criteria for safety, efficacy and effectiveness laid out for other NHS treatments.

Jake Sobo: My life on PrEP—4 years later

We couldn’t be more excited to re-connect with one of our legendary contributors, Jake Sobo, for this feature on BETA. Back in 2012, Sobo was one of the first—if not the first—gay man to write openly about his experience taking PrEP for HIV prevention. He quickly became one of our most read and controversial authors—sparking debates online and off. We recently caught up with Jake to get an update on his life, hear his thoughts on the future of PrEP, and find out what he thinks about rising rates of sexually transmitted infections among gay men.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
