HIV and LGTB NGOs and other concerned actors across Europe call for futher action on pre-exposure prophylaxis

The European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG), Europe’s network of HIV activists, and  AIDES, a leading French NGO in the fight against AIDS and viral hepatitis, backed by 81 European HIV LGBT civil society organisations and concerned actors, issued an urgent HIV Prevention Manifesto today. We demand that pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV (PrEP) is made available as soon as possible within the European Union, and that Gilead, the company that makes the PrEP medicine Truvada®, submits an application to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for a change of indication so that its use to prevent HIV can be approved.
