PrEP17: The Coming Age of PrEP

In 2015, I produced the video documentary on the PROUD Study vimeo.com/132412294 – the study that showed how highly effective PrEP is in gay men in the UK. Now, two years later, I wonder what the situation is like with PrEP in the UK, in 2017.

So I travelled from Hamburg, where I live, to London and talked with ordinary PrEP users – outside of the PROUD Study – to learn about their experiences and motivations. I also talked with PrEP activists and clinicians to find out what impact PrEP has already had in the UK, but also to find out what is still missing for a proper implementation.
