PrEP, short for pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a medicine prescribed to prevent HIV before a person is exposed. Being 99% effective if used properly, PrEP presents itself as game-changing in the fight against HIV. But what exactly is PrEP and how does it work?

In this edition of Yoxly Face-to-Face, Yoxly's co-founder and CEO, Dr Danae, sat down to discuss the importance of PrEP with Christiana Funmi Ogunmodede, an Antimicrobial Pharmacist working for the Royal Berkshire NHS.

In her role within the NHS, Christiana specialises in pharmaceutical administration for microbial diseases, infectious diseases and HIV. With her expertise in the field, Christiana talks through everything you should know about PrEP, including who is eligible for it on the NHS, the two different ways it can be administered and how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected this, possible side effects of PrEP. In an effort to further de-stigmatise HIV and PrEP, Christiana also shares some useful resources to educate yourself on these critical sexual health issues.
