Getting access to PrEP with no income

The Terrence Higgins Trust is working to set up a fund to support people in England and Northern Ireland, who need PrEP but are not able to access it on the NHS or cannot afford to buy it for themselves. The fund is most likely going to be open to people on no income or not working and can provide proof that they do not have an income.

The fund will provide access to PrEP to a number of people in the hope PrEP will become fully accessible to all who need it on the NHS. Following court rulings, the NHS has to make PrEP available to all in the future.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is an important HIV prevention strategy where HIV-negative people take anti-HIV medications before coming into contact with HIV to reduce their risk of becoming infected. The medications work to prevent HIV from establishing infection inside the body. Read more about PrEP here.

If this the fund is not for you and you think you can afford to buy PrEP yourself please visit our PrEP shop.
