Research studies has shown that PrEP is safe if medication such as Tenofovir and Lamivudine are used, iPrEx study has shown that the strategy is effective on in MSM who are able to take their medication accurately. Prep can be considered for MSM clients who have repeated high probable exposure rate to the HIV virus, for example discordant couples, sex workers and clients with multiple sex partners.

PrEP must be used as part of large prevention package to avoid giving clients a false sense of protection that might result in them increasing their risk of HIV exposure. MSM who use PrEP requires frequent adherence counselling and HIV screening.
