3-year PrEP pilot welcomed by Welsh Lib Dems

The Welsh Liberal Democrats have welcomed the beginning of a Welsh NHS PrEP pilot, which has been launched today (17th July 2017).

Commenting, Welsh Lib Dem Equalities Spokesperson Cadan ap Tomos said;

“The beginning of a three-year PrEP pilot in Wales is testament to the work and dedication of campaigners over many years in making the case for this life-saving drug to be made available on the NHS.

“International evidence shows the effectiveness of PrEP in reducing HIV transmission rates, and I look forward to this trial demonstrating just how positive the effect can be for the lives of people living in Wales.”
