WHAT'S PrEP?

While condoms remain the surest way to keep yourself safe from HIV and many other STIs, PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is another option for preventing HIV for those who struggle with condom use.

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

Note that as of March 1st 2018, PrEP is a publicly-funded medicine in NZ. This means that for those who meet certain criteria, PrEP is available at local pharmacies for $5 for a three month supply. For those who don't meet the criteria, the online ordering process mentioned in the video is still available.
