PrEP Legal Challenge

Why we need your help

Support our campaign and legal action to make PrEP available!

NHS England is sitting on something that could be the beginning of the end for HIV – PrEP – but it can only work if they make it available.

PrEP is an HIV prevention drug, proven to be effective in stopping HIV transmission. With 17 people a day diagnosed with HIV in the UK we need PrEP now.

However, NHS England have decided they aren’t responsible for paying for it. We disagree. That’s why we’ve started a campaign and are planning legal action.

But we can’t do it without your help!

We’re in the process of lodging a judicial review in the High Court – to challenge NHS England’s decision. But there are risks attached, including court costs.

NAT is a small charity and we can't cover the campaign and legal costs by ourselves. We’re confident in the strength of our case, but we can’t be sure what the outcome will be.

We’ll be asking the judge and NHS England to keep legal costs to a minimum but we still need public support to make this possible and cover our campaign expenses. We need your help to make sure we can continue to keep the pressure on the Government . . . that’s where you come in.  

Your donation will help ensure that we’re one step closer to everyone in England who needs PrEP having access to it. With PrEP now available in many countries across the world, we can’t afford to be left behind.

Want to know more about PrEP and what’s happened?

We’ll post regular updates and any court documents we’re allowed to share here. In the meantime…

  • Read our solicitor’s letter to NHS England explaining our legal case here
  • Read our statement about the NHS England decision here.
  • Read our blog about what went wrong here.
  • Find out what the decision means for heterosexuals here.
  • Read more about the case for PrEP here.
  • Write to your MP about the NHSE decision here.

We'll be making an application for a hearing in the next few days. We think we're going to raise enough to make a case possible. If the case goes ahead, the money will initially be used for court fees and protection against the other side's costs if necessary. Any extra will go towards our legal costs, and beyond that to fund our ongoing policy and campaigning work to make PrEP in England a reality.

Thank you for your PREP campaign. Hopefully NHS England will approach funding it the same way it does for any other potential treatments.
