PrEP&Prejudice

A national programme funded by Public Health England Innovation Fund that aims to influence how black African communities engage in HIV prevention, specifically the use of PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) as a HIV Prevention tool. The project aims to increase PrEP awareness and uptake among Heterosexual and MSM Black African communities in England.

 

PrEP&Prejudice

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is an HIV prevention strategy that uses antiretroviral drugs to protect HIVnegative people from HIV infection. People take antiretrovirals (ARVs) when they are at risk of exposure to HIV, in order to lower their risk of infection. PrEP is highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV, as long as the drugs are taken regularly, as directed. However, PrEP does not prevent other sexually transmitted infections or pregnancy. 

PrEP&Prejudice is a partnership involving Africa Advocacy Foundation,(lead organisation) AAEGRO, EMBRACE, African Health Policy Network, House of Rainbow and French African Welfare Association

 

PrEP&Prejudice

Why promote PrEP in Black and Minorities communities?

This project aims to increase knowledge and understanding of PrEP as one of the HIV prevention tool amongst Black African communities within a cultural context. Current statistics have highlighted poor awareness  of PrEP within BME communities, which may have impacted the ongoing high HIV infection rate in BME communities in England.Increasing PrEP awareness and knowledge will help to reduce HIV prevalence within BME communities.
