Are women PrePared?

Can PreP just be provided to men who have sex with men in the UK? What about others? What about other vulnerable populations, such as black women and migrants? What about trans women? All the data we have here in the UK is about men who have sex with men, and this worries me.

Why should WE pay for gays to have unsafe sex?

Researchers are recommending that healthy gay men should be given an HIV prevention drug free on the NHS at a cost of almost £5,000 a year per person. What kind of ethics is it to save one group of society from a disease that can be prevented by using a £1 condom, while denying cancer sufferers a longer life?

HIV pill: The logic of paying £500 a month so gay men don't have to wear condoms

At a time when the NHS is under immense financial strain – some might say bankrupt – it may seem odd to suggest that the health service pay nearly £500 a month for a gay man to take a daily pill so that he doesn’t have to wear a condom. However, the scientists behind this clinical trial believe that a policy of offering daily drugs aimed at curbing new HIV infections within certain high-risk groups of men who have sex with men may actually save the NHS money in the long term.

Sexual Transmission of HCV in Gay Men Should Not Be a PrEP Deterrent, Say Advocates

After two men on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) at the Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Medical Center tested positive for the hepatitis C virus (HCV), clinicians at the center penned a letter to the editor of the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases calling for routine HCV testing in gay men who are currently on PrEP.

What We Know About HIV Transmission Should Influence PrEP Messaging
