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.

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.
