The MHAHS is launching a social media campaign on PrEP to raise awareness and reduce HIV infections among people from diverse backgrounds.

The campaign will focus on PrEP as an effective method of HIV prevention.

"The PrEP campaign is an important initiative in our ongoing effort against HIV," said Barbara Luisi, manager of the MHAHS.

 “We need people to know their HIV status, and what they can do to prevent HIV.”

The PrEP Social Media campaign is designed to encourage individuals at risk of HIV to consider PrEP, or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, as a method of HIV prevention. PrEP is a daily pill that protects you from HIV infection. Since 1 April this year PrEP has been  available from pharmacies with a doctor’s prescription. PrEP is up to 99 percent effective in preventing HIV infection.
