  • : Melbourne VIC 3000

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is the most effective bio-medical form of HIV prevention, and trials across Australia have shown a dramatic decrease in new HIV infection in those at risk of HIV.

  • Identify people at risk of contracting HIV
  • Feel comfortable in assessing a patient’s eligibility for PrEP based on behavioural and clinical criteria
  • Understand the efficacy and safety of PrEP in the prevention of HIV transmission
  • Know how to access tools and clinical guidelines for prescribing PrEP
