Qld PrEP study recruiting
In November last year, the Queensland Minister for Health, Cameron Dick, announced the commencement of the Queensland PrEP study, QPrEPd. The study will provide PrEP for up to 2,000 Queenslanders. This marks a significant milestone for Queensland to expand HIV prevention services.
The trial is an initiative of the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service, Queensland Health, University of Queensland’s School of Public Health, and the Queensland AIDS Council (QuAC); it involves 21 study locations throughout the state. Most sites are recruiting now, with all locations expected to be open early this year.
Those interested in participating in this study should contact their local clinic directly to enquire about availability of appointments as well as their billing practices (bulk-billing or fee). While the medication for QPrEPd participants will be free, some clinics do charge private fees for consultations.
