Long Description

Who we are
PrEPster was founded in October 2015 by four London based HIV prevention activists, in response to the lack of clear and concise educational info available about PrEP. In particular, those activists were concerned about the lack of information to key communities including gay and bi men, Black African communities, trans people, sex workers and migrants.

PrEPster is known for being independent from any statutory or voluntary sector organisations. We believe that our work should be led by and should over-serve populations that are less likely to access PrEP education materials but are most in need of it. Our work focuses on being diverse, ensuring that those communities of concern are at the heart of our planning and our work.

Collectively, we have a wealth of over 50 years experience in public health and advocacy, and most of us are either living with HIV, PrEP users or are in sero-discordant relationships.

PrEPster is a program of The Love Tank, a not-for-profit community interest community (CIC) that promotes the health and wellbeing of under-served communities through education, capacity building and research.

He has several areas of interest in general practice including women’s health, trans-affirming care, food as medicine, neurodivergence and trauma-informed practice.

Sam's passion is training a multi-professional primary care workforce suited to meeting the needs of those facing healthcare inequalities.
It is a basic human right to have our healthcare needs met, and enabling this requires a different way of learning. Changing the health of the nation necessitates making healthcare accessible to all.
