Dear all,

Please see attached photos from yesterday’s Coalition Plus action for
access to PrEP following WHO's recommendations, at the opening of the
HIV/hepatitis francophone conference ‘AFRAVIH’ in Brussels.

The Brussels Appeal for PrEP was launched yesterday by the AFRAVIH; *it
calls on:*

·         *Policy makers around the world to commit to making PrEP
available to all high-risk populations who express the need for it, and to
remove legislative, political and financial barriers impeding such access;*

·         *Health authorities and professionals to integrate PrEP into
national recommendations, in a combined prevention of all sexually
transmitted infections, and to lead, where appropriate, the implementation
of pilot projects to tailor PrEP supply and meet specific needs;*

·         *The actors in the fight against HIV to advocate for PrEP in the
North and the South so that all highly vulnerable populations can enjoy the
same rights in terms of access to effective prevention;*

·         *Donors to increase dedicated funding to support the extension of
access to PrEP in the South, to prevent tradeoffs between prevention and
treatment, unethical and contrary to recommended strategies to end the HIV

·         *Pharmaceutical companies to ensure affordable and effective
antiretroviral therapies and to support research on the preventive
effectiveness of other ARVS.*
