PrEP: Cardiff anti-HIV drug user wants to end stigma


Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a pill taken daily or on demand before sex to prevent HIV infection.

Public Health Wales said the possibility that the drug might increase "risk behavior" and the infection rates for other STIs would be closely monitored.

Currently, a study is being conducted on the drug, which now employs more than 800 people.

A PrEP user, Chris Hicks, 35, from Cardiff, explained how the drug affected his life and how he wants to see an end to the stigmatization of his use.
