Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

PrEPPrEP is the use of HIV medication, taken regularly, to keep HIV negative people from becoming infected.

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.
