In Australia, you could be eligible for PrEP if you are a gay or other man (cis or trans) who has sex with other men, a person of trans experience, a non-binary person, or a heterosexual person for several reasons including if you have regular or casual HIV positive partners or want to have a baby with your HIV positive partner. People who inject drugs and share injecting equipment are also eligible for PrEP, but it is important that people can access sterile injecting equipment.
If you are a gay or other man (cis or trans), non-binary inclusive, who has sex with other men, you could be eligible for PrEP if you:
- have recently had and are likely to have sex without a condom (including when the condom breaks or slips off) when you don’t know your partner’s HIV status, or with an HIV positive partner who does not have an undetectable viral load
- have recently had an STI in your arse or front hole (vagina), or if you have recently had syphilis
- use methamphetamine (crystal, ice)
Even if you don’t meet these eligibility criteria, if you want to take PrEP, you should speak to a healthcare professional, because they are able to prescribe PrEP for a range of reasons on a case-by-case basis.
