This pilot study is investigating expert perspectives on the social factors that influence the adoption and use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and its uptake in locations with disparities of access, awareness and infrastructure. This research is being conducted to gain a better understanding of how PrEP is being implemented in Australia and understand disparities in access in different Australian jurisdictions. We are currently recruiting ‘key informants’ to take part in interviews who hold professional experience in this field, including policymakers, advocates and researchers.
