The Victorian AIDS Council has announced it will give an additional $100,000 to the PrEPX trial to fund access to pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV (PrEP) for 600 Victorians at risk.

VAC’s announcement comes months after PrEPX reached capacity for men living in
metropolitan Melbourne. The VAC said there is already a substantial waiting list for those wishing to access PrEP as part of the trial.
