Truvada as PrEP is to be trialled in New Zealand. The New Zealand AIDS Foundation together with the Auckland Sexual Health Service has been given the green light by the Ministry of Health to develop a trial by the end of the year.

In studies overseas, Truvada as PrEP — pre-exposure prophylaxis — has proved to be highly effective in reducing the risk of HIV transmission. There are currently three PrEP trials underway in Australia.
