Want to find out more information about PrEP?

PrEP stands for Pre Exposure Prophylaxis. PrEP is an antiretroviral medication that is taken by HIV negative people to prevent HIV infection. Studies from around the world have shown that if taken daily, PrEP works.

PrEP is a very effective HIV prevention tool. It is an exciting medical advancement for anyone who might be at high risk of acquiring HIV. Among heterosexuals, PrEP might be a suitable prevention tool for partners of HIV positive people. While studies have proven that HIV treatments prevent a HIV positive person from transmitting the virus to their partners, we recognise that PrEP may play a role in decreasing anxiety around sex and intimacy for people in serodiscordant relationships.”
