Open Letter to Premier Horgan

As organizations that serve vulnerable populations, we know that PrEP works, and that stigma around talking about sex, HIV, and being gay is a continued barrier to reducing HIV diagnoses. We know more than ever about how to treat this virus and how to prevent it. Now is the time for this government to act. We share Premier Horgan’s hope that BC will cover PrEP as a medical service and that British Columbia will continue to lead Canada and the world in HIV elimination. | Keep Reading

Or this is the story I keep telling myself. | Keep Reading
