Abstract:

This publication, produced collaboratively between UNAIDS, WHO and AVAC, is intended to complement WHO recommendations and support the optimal use of oral PrEP to protect individuals and contribute to ending the AIDS epidemic.

It starts by describing the essential principles for oral PrEP, followed by the basics of PrEP. The following topics then follow: PrEP and treatment within a comprehensive HIV programme, the need for PrEP, the demand for information, combination prevention, broader considerations, national response, successful PrEP programming elements, cost considerations, implementation steps for PrEP, the future beyond daily oral PrEP based on TDF. The basic facts on PrEP conclude the publication.
