HIV and AIDS
Who should consider PrEP?
PrEP is likely to be of benefit to people who are at higher risk of HIV infection, such as:
- men who have sex with men
- trans men and women
- people with partners from parts of the world where the rate of HIV is much higher
- people with an HIV positive partner who does not have an undetectable viral load
- and people who do not always use condoms for sex
There are situations where PrEP may be particularly advisable, such as in:
- men who have sex with men who have had a recent sexually transmitted infection (particularly in the rectum/anus)
- people who have used post-exposure prophylaxis (PEPSE) following sexual risk
- people who use chem sex drugs
Who should NOT take PrEP
- People who are already (or may be) HIV positive
- People who have an HIV positive partner who is taking HIV treatment, is currently “undetectable” and has been for at least the last six months, and where that person is their only partner
