The High Court today has decided in favour of the National Aids Trust in a high-profile decision regarding the funding of the “highly effective” pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a treatment which has been shown in several cases to prevent HIV being established when it is transmitted. Mr Justice Green has ruled that NHS England “erred in deciding that it has no power or duty to commission the preventative drugs in issue”. Karon Monaghan QC was involved in this case, acting for the National Aids Trust in their successful challenge.
