PrEP is the use of antiretroviral drugs, taken by HIV negative people to prevent HIV infection. PrEP stands for pre exposure prophylaxis. Unlike post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) which is taken after a potential exposure to HIV, PrEP is taken on an ongoing basis and it provides protection against HIV. Studies from around the world have shown that if PrEP is taken daily, it prevents HIV.

If you would more information about PrEP, please ask your doctor or nurse when you visit, or find more information at www.endinghiv.org.au
