/ The Informer / Health / How will the recommendation to list PrEP on PBS effect you? With AFAO, PAN & Jill Hennessy MP : 12th February 2018


On this episode of The Informer, we look further into Fridays announcement that the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee has recommended that pre-exposure prophylaxis, better known as PrEP, will be listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, making this game changing tool for HIV prevention accessible across Australia.

How will the new cost of PrEP affect the community that currently get it for free or discounted through a trial?

Are our general practitioners ready for conversations around sexual health prevention, treatment as prevention and more?

And how do we move the conversation past men who have sex with men, for protection across the nation and combat the stigma that still exists surrounding HIV?

This show was hosted by Lara Dickinson and aired in 12 February 2018 on JOY 94.9.
