PrEP Health Australia
To access PrEP, you need a prescription from a doctor. To prescribe you the Doctor needs a pathology
In order to make this process easier, PrEP Health have created an all-inclusive service that covers your assessment, prescription and ongoing care.
When you sign up through PrEP Health, you will need one initial visit to pathology to confirm that you are HIV negative, have healthy kidney function and to have an STI screen.
Once this has been completed, our doctor will evaluate your results and send your script to either your nominated pharmacy for you to collect, or to our pharmacy partner who will fulfil the prescription and discreetly ship it to you.
Every 3 months, we will send you an HIV test and Dr Tanner will monitor your ongoing screening requirements to continue your prescription.
