And that's great news for everyone who's using PrEP medication to take better control over their health.

  • PrEP (Pre-exposure prophylaxis) is an anti-HIV medicine taken by a person who doesn't have HIV to lower their risk of infection.
  • The brand name of the drug known as PrEP is Truvada and it's now listed on the PBS and subsided by the Australian Government.

Simply speaking

PrEP is Pre-exposure Medication

PrEP medication can now be prescribed by any GP through the PBS. This means for Australian's taking greater control over their sexual health, the wider availability of this medication has the potential to reduce HIV infection rates in Australia.

A note about Post-exposure medication is referred to as PEP.

This post-exposure treatment is a 4-week course of anti-HIV medication that is shown to be effective in preventing HIV infection if started within 72 hours of exposure. The key to PEP is accessing it as soon as possible after you think you may have been exposed to HIV.  Info Source
