Wales advised not to prescribe PrEP to prevent HIV transmission

Wales advised not to prescribe PrEP to prevent HIV transmission
- NHS England is currently conducting a trial of the medication which it plans to extend to 10,000 participants over the coming months.
However, the All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG) today announced that it does not recommend PrEP for use on the NHS in Wales. It has indicated that it is not convinced of the drug’s cost efficiency.
PrEP is manufactured under the brand name Truvada. It may cost up to £400 per patient a month, although the NHS may be able to negotiate a discount for bulk orders.
The decision is a recommendation only and the Welsh Government could act against it. However, campaigners for PrEP provision – which has been credited with driving down HIV transmission rates among gay men in other parts of the UK – reacted with disappointment.

Silence and Fear a Year After a Prominent Bangladeshi Activist's Murder

Silence and Fear a Year After a Prominent Bangladeshi Activist's Murder
- For many in Bangladesh, LGBTI activist Xulhaz Mannan was one of those people who only needed a first name. A bit like Cher, Voltaire, or Moses, people in Dhaka know about Xulhaz.
Before he was murdered in April 2016, he founded the nation’s first LGBTI magazine, was an employee of the U.S. embassy in Dhaka, and organized the largest public HIV testing event ever to happen in Bangladesh. Xulhaz was also a friend, mentor, and “inspiration” to hundreds of young men.* At “working parties” in his living room, he coached them through the stages of researching, writing, editing, and publishing a magazine. He guided young activists who wanted to advocate for better police protection for trans people. He was also, as one LGBTI activist in Dhaka told me, the “walking center of gay social life” in Dhaka.
