What is PrEP?

PrEP is the use of antiretroviral drugs, taken by HIV negative people to prevent HIV infection. PrEP is an acronym that stands for pre exposure prophylaxis and is an exciting new tool that will play a vital role in our efforts to end HIV in NSW by 2020.

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 in advance to any potential exposure.
