Fortunately NHS England does not represent the NHS as a whole.
Prevention using PrEP is cheaper than treating HIV. So NHS England’s argument is null and void on its own terms.
Even were the argument sound, moral panic does not undermine prevention of other diseases, so there is no justice in it doing so here.
The campaigners depicted here are truly heroic, and the filmmakers treat them with the sensitivity and humanity they deserve.
