Prevention

The best way to protect yourself and others from HIV is to practice safe behaviours. Safe is the way to play.
 
PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a new HIV prevention method in which people who do not have HIV take a pill everyday to reduce their risk of becoming infected with HIV.

Testing

HIV testing is faster and easier than ever before and it's confidential. Rapid tests are now available which give you a result within 30 minutes.
 
More of us need to get tested more often. How often depends on our lifestyle and sexual behaviour.
 

The HIV support program

The HIV Support Program and five key support services provide enhanced advice and support for doctors and their patients at the time of a new HIV diagnosis.
