The second annual PrEP Awareness Week takes place from Monday 28 November until Sunday 4 December to coincide with World AIDS Day on 1 December. 

PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. It’s a medicine people at risk of HIV can take to prevent them from getting HIV. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective. It can help you stay in control of your sex life and keep healthy.

During PrEP Awareness Week, CNWL’s Sexual Health Team in Surrey want to make sure as many people as possible know about PrEP, especially those most at risk of HIV, such as gay, bi, and other men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM), and people who either come from, or whose partners come from, a country with high rates of HIV.

This short film tells you more about how PrEP works  

Staff in our clinics are available to discuss PrEP with you.

You can book PrEP appointments in CNWL’s clinics or talk to our Outreach Team who provide informational and promotional resources, condom and lube packs.
