Dr Adrian Palfreeman, Vice Chair of the British HIV Association, said: "We welcome the news that we have made significant progress in efforts to prevent HIV in men who have sex with men, where ongoing transmission in the UK remains unacceptably high, and look forward to seeing the results when they are available. BHIVA, along with other key stakeholders, are working with NHS England to devise a policy to consider the future availability of pre-exposure prophylaxis, alongside existing measures to prevent infection, within the NHS in the future."
