Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a course of HIV drugs taken before sex to reduce the risk of getting HIV. In those at highest risk, trials have shown it to be very effective. It is not yet available on the NHS (outside the trial below) but many of those at high risk are choosing to buy it online.
If you wish to take part in the trial call Leeds Sexual Health on 0113 392 033, speak to our reception staff or come along to one of our drop-in sessions.
