Are you currently taking PrEP and would like to share your experiences with other people in your community to help them be more aware of HIV prevention methods available to them?
The Queensland AIDS Council is now seeking people across Queensland who are willing to take part in their upcoming QuAC PrEP awareness campaign which will include a ‘story telling’ component. Participants are able to remain anonymous in the program which aims to share the real experiences of guys in Queensland who are currently using PrEP.
PrEP is a new HIV prevention method in which people who do not have HIV take a pill daily to reduce their risk of contracting HIV. A series of international studies have shown promising results, indicating that PrEP, when used properly, is a very effective method of preventing the transmission of HIV. Like all HIV prevention strategies, however, there are pros and cons and this program is designed to allow other people across Queensland to become better informed about what PrEP is all about.
All participants are required to do is have a short meeting or phone conversation with one of the QuAC representatives listed below who will explain the program in greater detail and, share their PrEP experience in a short blog. Participants are welcome to be as publicly open or as anonymous as they wish.
If you would like to be a part of this campaign, QuAC would love to hear from you. Please contact Robert (Brisbane) 3017 1725 or 0417 604 467 [email protected] or Alex (Cairns) 07 4041 5451 or 0488 035 722 or [email protected]
