In episode 21, Karen talks to Dr Rak Nandwani about PrEP.  Dr Nandwani is a Consultant in Genitourinary Medicine with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.  He was Chair of the Scottish Short Life Working Group on PrEP, which was commissioned by the Scottish Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus (SHBBV) Framework Executive Leads.

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is anti-HIV medication taken by people who are HIV negative to lower their risk of acquiring HIV infection. The Scottish Medicines Consortium approved PrEP in combination with safer sex practices, on April 10, 2017. In the podcast we talk about all of that and more!
