France approves PrEP

(Not sure if this if i posting this in the right category)


Well done France, hopefully more EU locations will follow.

In a historic move, France has become the first country outside the USA, and the first country with a centrally-organised, reimbursable health system, to approve no-expense pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for people who need it.

The French Minister of Health, Marisol Touraine, announced today that PrEP would be available from mid-December, and reimbursable through the French health system from the beginning of January.

PrEP will be offered as two alternative regimens: daily Truvada for anyone assessed as needing it, but also intermittent PrEP as studied in the Ipergay trial for MSM who have frequent condomless sex and do not have chronic hepatitis B infection. The Ipergay regimen consists of a double dose of Truvada 2-24 hours before sex plus one dose on each of the following two days afterwards, to be continued if condomless sex is continued. The French medicines agency ANSM, who complied to evidence dossier submitted to the Department of Health, comment that the Ipergay did not establish the effectiveness of intermittent PrEP in women (or trans men) or in MSM who have condomless sex only occasionally, and specifically warns against intermittent PrEP in people with chronic hepatitis B as this could cause drug resistance.
Flatulence can be a good thing.
When the kids are not behaving I just threaten to fart on them. Works every time. Trust me I only had to demonstrate once.
