Simon Harris: Make PrEP Available In Ireland For Free Through The HSE
This petition had 4 supporters
HIV diagnoses are on the rise in Ireland, while countries like the UK - which have a wider access to PrEP through the new NHS generic trial and online resources like iwantprepnow.co.uk - have seen a significant drop in new HIV diagnoses.
Here are some facts around HIV and PrEP:
- 51% of people diagnosed with HIV in Ireland in 2016 were men who have sex with men (MSM)
- PrEP is highly effective at preventing HIV infection
- PrEP is currently inaccessible to those who need it most, costing €400 / month to purchase the medication
By making PrEP freely available to those most at risk of contracting HIV in Ireland, Simon Harris, you could be the Minister for Health who turns the tide in the fight against HIV.
This petition urges Simon Harris to remain silent on the issue of PrEP access and the sexual health of MSM no longer!
