What Works in South Australia

Today there are a number of ways to stop the onward transmission of HIV, and knowing your options is important for protecting yourself and your sexual partners. That’s why SAMESH has launched a new sexual health campaign in South Australia – What Works.

There have been a lot of changes in how we can protect ourselves against HIV.  What works for you may be different with each sexual partner or may change over time.

We now have pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV-negative people. There is post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) in the event someone is potentially exposed to HIV during sex.

For people living with HIV, recently released research has proven that effective treatment and maintaining an undetectable viral load (UVL) means there is zero chance of transmitting the virus.

Plus, condoms continue to play an important role in protecting against HIV and other STIs.

What works for you may or may not be what works for someone else. So have the conversation with your sexual partners and be open to future conversations if circumstances change.
