What is PrEP?

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis is a course of anti-HIV drugs which would be taken by people to lower the risk of HIV infection. Research suggests that PrEP is as effective as condoms at preventing HIV.

PrEP does not protect against any STIs other than HIV and it only protects the person taking PrEP. 

PrEP is not licensed in Scotland and is therefore not available here.

We will update this information if PrEP becomes licensed in Scotland.
