NAT (National AIDS Trust) are fighting to make PrEP available on the NHS in England.
PrEP (a way to prevent HIV by taking a pill before and after sex) could be the beginning of the end for HIV - but NHS England (NHSE) says that it doesn't have the power to pay for it. NAT disagree, and when NHSE wouldn't see sense, they launched a judicial review - and won.
Despite the strength of this ruling - NHSE has decided to appeal - and NAT are now forced to go to court once again to fight for NHSE to treat PrEP fairly, and to take HIV prevention seriously.
