PrEP, aka Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, is a game-changer for HIV prevention. If you want to learn more about this incredible little blue pill - and to find out how to get it - you've come to the right place.

*Please note that accessing PrEP is now even easier than it was at the time of recording the video above. Keep reading below to find out more.

How do I get on PrEP?

To simplify things right down - you need to:

  • Find out if PrEP is the right prevention tool for you
  • Check you are HIV negative - confirmed by a blood test with your doctor
  • Get a prescription - after running tests and discussing whether it is right for you
  • Use the prescription to either get publicly funded or self-funded PrEP

There are a few terms and conditions and it can take a little bit of time, but if it's the right option for you - it really is that simple.
