PrEP17 – The coming of age of PrEP – film screening tomorrow, (July 6)

Besi Besemar July 5, 2017

In 2015, film maker Nicholas Feustel made a documentary film about the England PROUD PrEP trial.

The documentary was shown at community events across the UK, and formed the focus for PrEPster’s Pushing for PrEP community education events.

In January 2017, Nicholas returned to London to pick up what has happened to PrEP since the completion of the last film.

PrEP17 explores the stories of over a dozen PrEP activists; current and former PrEP users; clinicians; and policy-makers. The 36 minute documentary film, commissioned by PrEPster, shines a light on how PrEP has become available to thousands of people, despite the failures of the health system.

Join PrEPster, Terrence Higgins Trust South, and the Martin Fisher Foundation for the Brighton launch of PrEP17. The film will be followed by an interactive panel discussion of activists, PrEP users and clinicians chaired by Dr Will Nutland.

Other people on the panel confirmed to speak include: Nicholas Feustel – film maker and director of PrEP17; Greg OwenI Want PreP Now; Dr Amanda Clarke – Consultant in HIV/GUM and Clinical Trials BSUH

Go along and find out about: how people are accessing PrEP in England; when the new IMPACT PrEP trial will start; PrEP and if it might be something for you, or someone you know.

The event is being co-hosted by Martin Fisher Foundation and Terrence Higgins Trust and will take place at Friends Meeting House on Thursday, July 6 starting at 7.30pm.
