Welsh Lib Dems respond to All Wales Medicines Strategy Group recommendation on PrEP
Welsh Lib Dem Equalities spokesperson Cadan ap Tomos said;
"Today's decision by the All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG) is incredibly short sighted and will be a blow to those who have long campaigned for PrEP to be made available on the NHS.
"It is also contradictory to the decision taken in Scotland, which became the first of the UK nations to approve the provision of PrEP by the NHS earlier this month."
"When you've got a growing body of evidence on the clinical effectiveness of a drug, and organisations like the Terrence Higgins Trust against you, you should realise you're on the wrong side of the argument."
