What is PrEP?

PrEP is a HIV prevention method where people who do not have HIV take a pill every day to reduce their risk of becoming infected with HIV.

What is PrEPIT-WA?

PrEPIT-WA is a study run by the Kirby Institute, University of New South Wales, funded by the Western Australian (WA) Government, in collaboration with a number of partners, including sexual health services and clinics. PrEPIT-WA aims to assess the impact of the rapid expansion in access to PrEP amongst those at highest risk of acquiring HIV, in particular, if it will lead to a drop in new HIV infections.

The study will see up to 2,000 people at high risk of acquiring HIV enrolled in the study as efficiently as possible.

Who is Eligible for the PrEPIT-WA Study?

Eligibility for PrEPIT-WA is based on the ASHM HIV PrEP clinical guidelines and these are described here.
