PrEPARE Project 2023 update

Back to events

The PrEPARE Project is a national, online survey of gay and bisexual men’s attitudes to HIV prevention technologies that has been repeated every 2 years since 2011. It has a particular focus on newer prevention methods like pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and undetectable=untransmittable (U=U). The most recent round was conducted in June-July 2023 and recruited over 2000 participants, with advertising in English, Mandarin and Thai.

This session will provide an overview of key findings from the 2023 round, including trends in attitudes to PrEP and U=U, reasons for using or not using PrEP, preferences for different dosing methods, discussion and disclosure with sexual partners, attitudes to STI prevention methods like doxycycline post-exposure prophylaxis (doxy-PEP), and concern about antimicrobial resistance. We will outline planned, in-depth analyses on specific topics, but encourage questions and suggestions from the audience to guide follow up work.

Presenter: Dr James MacGibbon, UNSW Centre for Social Research in Health
