Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)
The evidence supporting this comes from the PROUD study which reported in February 2015 that PrEP reduced the risk of HIV infection by 86% for gay men and other men who have sex with men. This was one of the most robust studies ever taken into drug-based HIV prevention.
Where and how to get PrEP
Accessing PrEP on the NHS is different in England, Scotland, and Wales; with a pilot in Northern Ireland. Alternatively, you can buy PrEP privately or on-line for £20-40/ month but you are advised to connect with your sexual health service for monitoring.
