PrEP is an effective HIV prevention intervention, using antiretroviral drugs to protect individuals at risk of acquiring HIV. The SLWG considered the use of PrEP, recognising that it could form one component of wider targeted HIV prevention for those at the highest risk of HIV acquisition in Scotland.

This report is to provide recommendations on HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in Scotland to the Sexual Health & Blood Borne Virus Executive Leads from the HIV PrEP Short Life Working Group (SLWG).

The report is intended for use by local and national policy makers, NHS boards, health professionals, the third sector, and those with an interest in how to increase access to HIV testing in Scotland.
