While The NHS Drags Its Heels On PrEP, This Is How Men Are Being Affected

Although NHS England increased places in the PrEP Impact Trial to 13,000 participants in summer and recently said it hopes to extend this to 26,000 before 2020, it is yet to confirm when these places will become available – or what will happen when the three-year trial is up.

So when an ambitious scientist offered HIV-positive men and their spouses what seemed to be a way out of this despair, several hundred couples in China jumped at the chance, expressing interest in a clinical trial that promised to deliver them babies forever protected from HIV infections.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

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
