On August 30th, 2018, AHS released a new set of guidelines related to HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). The guidelines provide the eligibility criteria to access PrEP as well as the clinical considerations for its use. This briefing note provides some of the highlights and implications of these guidelines.
The new guidelines explain how PrEP is now covered by Health Care for eligible individuals.
The PrEP Alberta website provides a useful resource breaking down the various elements of the Albertan PrEP guidelines, focusing on the eligibility criteria. It describes who is eligible to obtain publicly funded PrEP, as well as who can prescribe it.
