PrEP added to the HIV Prevention Toolkit
PrEP has now been added to the PBS in Australia!
Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is the regular use of HIV medication by HIV-negative people to prevent acquisition of the virus. It is an important new tool in the HIV prevention toolkit, and will support Australia to meet its target of ending HIV transmission.
The release of PrEP is a timely reminder to review the range of HIV prevention tools available in Australia. Take a look at our new HIV prevention web page to see which tools are right for you!
For more information on HIV prevention contact NTAHC in Darwin or Alice Springs.
