4. Speak out against stigma

Research shows that stigma about using PrEP – including slut-shaming –  stops people from talking about it with their friends and sexual partners. Challenge it when you hear it or see it online.

5. Email your MP

Call on your MP to support the availability of PrEP in England. Write to them about the NHS England u-turn on PrEP

6. Contact your local authority

Ask your local authority’s Director of Public Health (DPH) what provisions they are putting in place now, should PrEP become available on the NHS in the future. Your local authority will be the same authority you pay your Council Tax to. You can find the email addresses of your local DPH here.

7. Ask your sexual health clinic

Ask about PrEP availability at your next sexual health clinic visit (even if you won’t personally use it). Respectfully ask the clinic to record that you have requested it, or asked about access to it for you, a friend or your partner/s. Remember that many sexual health staff want to see it available too – and likely to be on your side.
