PrEP Policy Review for Ireland

Last Thursday, June 15th, HIV Ireland and the Gay Health Network launched a new policy paper on PrEP in Ireland and called “for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) to be made a public health priority in Ireland,” adding that in light of record levels of new HIV diagnoses in Ireland, “PrEP must be introduced as a key HIV prevention intervention.”

The report, titled Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Scoping and Policy Options Review, was commissioned to “provide evidence-based guidance on PrEP efficacy, while establishing the views of key populations affected by HIV, and stakeholders directly and indirectly involved in the provision of HIV services throughout Ireland.”

Author Ann Nolan conducted an extensive review of the evidence around PrEP and conducted interviews with a range of healthcare providers and advocates, as well as current and potential PrEP users.

This document will be a valuable resource for advocates for PrEP availability in Ireland, and adds strong new voices to the campaign for PrEP in Ireland. Interview with Will St. Leger

We’re big fans of masc. The interviews and photos are consistently engaging and provocative, touching on topics too rarely given the attention they deserve.

So we are delighted that our own Will St. Leger is the subject of an interview published today. Will talks about the frustration and anger that animates our HIV activism, and about how activist art has helped to focus and guide that energy in productive ways throughout the history of the epidemic.

Will has been the driving force behind our event “All Together Human”, an exhibition of protest art for Irish AIDS Day . The one-day show is on June 15, 2017, and runs from 6 to 10pm at Filmbase in Temple Bar. Please come down and have a look and a chat!
