High Court of England Says NHS Erred in Not Funding PrEP
We’ve reported before on the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) deciding not to fund PrEP, and what a baffling, downright stupid decision that is. Luckily, we’re not alone in thinking it’s a mistake — the High Court of England agrees. Unfortunately, this doesn’t override the NHS decision, and the NHS is planning to appeal. But presumably the appeals court will say the same thing — seriously, the NHS not funding PrEP is wacky. That and more in our look at health news from around the world!
