Through the Mags Portman PrEP Access Fund, we provided voucher codes that could be used to order PrEP online free of charge.
With sexual health clinics in England now rolling out access to PrEP, the access fund has closed and is no longer taking new applications. If you've been assigned a voucher code you've not yet used, this is currently still valid. Please contact us on [email protected] if you have any questions.
Dr Mags Portman, after whom the fund is named, was a pioneer within the sexual health sector, acknowledged as one of the key players in helping raise awareness of and support for PrEP in the UK. Dr Portman died in early 2019.
What is PrEP?
PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a drug taken by HIV-negative people before sex that reduces the risk of getting HIV.
Taking PrEP before being exposed to HIV means there’s enough drug inside you to block HIV if it gets into your body.
