Ending HIV

Ending HIV (an ACON initiative) has focused on educating, informing and supporting gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM) to reduce HIV transmissions in NSW by 80% by 2020. That’s a virtual elimination of the HIV epidemic, and while we know it’s an ambitious goal, we still believe it’s possible.

Ending HIV has great resources on not only PrEP, but undetectable viral load, condoms, and testing - and lots of resources on PrEP in multiple languages.
