Pre Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

Check out our YouTube PrEP Playlist for a collection of community forums and other videos that are tackling some of the questions surrounding the use of PrEP both here in Australia and overseas.

PrEPX is a new study sponsored by the Victorian Government, Alfred Health and VAC.  Its aim is to examine the impact of expanding the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis on the rates of new HIV infections in Victoria. This study will offer PrEP to up to 2,600 people at high risk of HIV infection.  It has been approved by the Alfred Health Human Ethics Committee.

Enrolments in the study sites and clinics are now open. Click here for more information.


VAC's Fact Sheet is a great place to start for an overview on PrEP and some of the main issues being discussed.

PrEP Access Options was released on the Ending HIV website in February 2015. This resource provides details on the current options for obtaining PrEP if you are living in Australia. This resource was released by ACON in partnership with Positive Life NSW and ASHM.
ASHM (Australasian Society for HIV Medicine) has released PrEP Resources for Clinicians to offer further guidelines and information to clinicians/doctors about HIV PrEP.
