PrEPster today joined with other leading PrEP advocate organisations in calling for PrEP for women in the UK.

The statement calls for dissemination of information about PrEP to women, and the active inclusion of women in the upcoming IMPACT trial.

Last month, PrEPster produced actions that could contribute to a more diverse trial
