PrEP, halfway there…

After a long and tedious battle a Belfast HIV clinic are to offer PrEP, while great news for those in need and those of us who have campaigned tirelessly for it, there is still work to be do.

The Belfast clinic is not accessible to all due to transport, this can at best lead to missed appointments, we also have to include voices of the communities more, especially the transgender community, if not then the full potential of PrEP will fail.

For so many years I had a great feeling that we were in a new era, where we could prevent this dangerous virus but I could not rejoice, now I can but only a little because we now need to get it to the people, including those in developing countries, who need it.

The battle is only half over, there is still much work to do, but for now, well done to all.
