Peter Bampton, Sexual Health Lead at LGBT Foundation said

“PrEP is a much-needed provision in reducing HIV transmission and we welcome the increased access that the Impact Trial will bring. We’re particularly pleased to see that Greater Manchester residents will be prioritised in the roll out of the trial, due to our high prevalence of people living with HIV. The trial will not only play a key role in fighting this epidemic but also reduce stigma that many people continue to face.”
