Everyone’s talking about PrEP right now, and for very good reason. The once-a-day tablet protects people from HIV. Yep, just like “the pill” stops pregnancy, PrEP can stop HIV.
It’s been approved in the US since 2012, but like same-sex marriage (*groan*) it is taking a little longer here.
Last month authorities rejected an application to add it to Australia’s PBS, meaning it will remain VERY expensive for the foreseeable future.
The good news is that a trial in NSW means those who meet the criteria can get themselves a prescription to PrEP at the moment. However places in the trial are running out.
3,700 people will be accepted in total, and doctors think it will be full by October – if not before. If you’ve been thinking about PrEP, now is the time to act.
The patented medication is worth about $1000/month, and the other option is buying it online from overseas.
So how can you join the trial?
They’re open EVERYDAY, 7 days a week
They accept walk-ins, no booking necessary
Bulk billing is available for PrEP consulations
Give them a call on (02) 9332 2531, or book online here. Or just go in at 102 Burton Street, Darlinghurst.
If you think PrEP is right for you, talk to someone now.
