Two PrEP crowdfunders – UK help needed today…

One of the most significant and healthy changes over the last year has been the new energy and activism over HIV prevention work Рand for the UK this is particulaly notable. 

Much of this has been focussed on PrEP – when leading research should have overturned 30 years of thinking based on persuading people to have less sex and only using condoms – two interventions that on their own are clearly not working on a population level.

PrEP changes this – providing close to 100% efficacy and allow people to experience sex without fear.

In addition to providing a focus for accurate information about how to access PrEP in the UK, behind the scenes this site answers hundreds of personal emails from individuals across the UK and internationally Рenergising activism one person at a time.

The crowdfunder for IWPN only has a few days to run – so any support ideally needs to be today or tomorrow.

And if NAT turns out not to need legal fund – perhaps if lawyers work pro bono or the NHS England decision is reversed – then condsidering donating any surplus to IWPN might be a good…

Your help is needed today for these projects to continue – all support is appreciated – dig deep and share the love…
