AFAO Policy on Post Exposure Prophylaxis

Abstract

The availability of PEP greatly advances the opportunity for individuals to interrupt infection with HIV. Its availability has triggered international debate about appropriate policy responses, and about its potential impact on adherence to safe behaviours. At the time of writing this policy paper Australia had not yet finalised its policy response to the issues of PEP availability. The Clinical Trials and Treatments Advisory Committee (CTTAC) was in the process of developing PEP policy. Some states had commenced developing guidelines for the administration of PEP. AFAO calls for a coordinated national policy response to the issues.
