The second is to ensure that health systems in general, and health service delivery specifically, are designed in a way that will meet men where they are with HIV-related services.

What does the PrEP decision mean for heterosexuals?

NHS England recently announced it was pulling the plug on an 18 month process to decide whether or not to fund pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV. While NHS England have offered a sop of £2 million funding to provide PrEP to 500 gay men over two years, there has been no mention of provision for heterosexual women and men at all, let alone those from African communities.

Together, we can make it happen
