Digital Subscriptions > GCN > 350 > PrEP: STEP BY STEP


PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. PrEP is a safe and effective way for people who are HIV negative to protect themselves against HIV by taking anti-HIV medication. But PrEP involves more than just taking the pills.

Using PrEP safely means getting support from a healthcare provider before you start and for as long as you continue to use PrEP. They can help you decide if PrEP is right for you, order the specific tests you need before starting PrEP, and write a prescription. Then they'll give you additional tests about every 3 months while you're using PrEP and write a new prescription.

About GCN

In this travel-themed issue of GCN, we profile LGBT+ Irish people who have made new lives abroad and at the same time welcome the new members to our queer family who have travelled from around the globe to make Ireland their home. Inside you’ll find tips from travellers with ideas on where you could plan that next trip. With relationships with other countries forefront in our minds, we also take a look at Brexit, how it affects us currently and what it could mean for the future.
