PrEP on Demand

Most folks familiar with pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) would know it as a daily pill to prevent HIV. Michael chats with some community and clinical experts around a relatively new way to use the power of PrEP around special ‘events’.

First, we talk with Michael Traeger – PhD student at the Burnet Institute who worked on the Victorian PrEPX study. We discuss the PrEP 101’s.

Next, Community advocate and early PrEP adopter Jeff Montgomery speaks from a community perspective about what is happening in the PrEP community. Just how much desire is for this event driven way of taking PrEP?

Dr. Vincent Cornelisse, a sexual health specialist at Kirkton Road Centre in Kings Cross. Before locating to Sydney, Dr. Cornelisse was a PrEP prescribing doctor in Melbourne and also part of the PrEPX clinical study – as well as undertaking his own research into the ways STIs are spread.

Finally, in the lead up to National Volunteers Week – as part of our volunteer spotlight series – I am joined by Thorne Harbour Health volunteer Clayton to talk about his experience volunteering with the organisation.
