04:58 EDT 27 Jul 2018 | Pharmafile

Those at risk of contracting HIV will now be offered PrEP drugs in England and Northern Ireland through a programme launched by the HIV and sexual health charity the Terrence Higgins Trust.

The Terrence Higgins Trust is to launch the PrEP Access Fund this autumn which will offer vouchers for the antiviral drugs to 1000 people in England and Northern Ireland who cannot afford to buy PrEP themselves. The vouchers will support those on low or no income who are at risk of contracting HIV.
