What is PrEP?

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis is a course of anti-HIV drugs which would be taken by people to lower the risk of becoming infected with HIV. Research suggests that PrEP is as effective as condoms at preventing HIV.

PrEP does not protect against any STIs other than HIV and it only protects the person taking PrEP.

For more information on PrEP and how you can access it, see the PrEP FAQ on the Steve Retson Project website.
