South Australians at high risk of contracting HIV will have access to the latest preventative technology study, as part of a State Government commitment announced today.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP is the latest prevention therapy in the fight against HIV. Under a PrEP access trial, eligible South Australians who don’t have HIV and who are at high risk of acquiring HIV may be prescribed a daily oral pill which, when taken consistently, has been shown to be effective in preventing HIV.
South Australia will commence negotiations with other states currently leading PrEP access trials.
