PrEP in the Context of Sex Work

Definition: Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, or "PrEP," is the idea that a person could take a pill once a day and be protected from catching HIV, not unlike the birth-control pill which protects from unwanted pregnancy.

"PreP in the Context of Sex Work: Possibilities and Limitations" is a national sex-worker group consultation to learn about, discuss and make recommendations regarding the use of PrEP in the sex workplace setting. The project has so far received three separate grants in support of this work: a $15,000 planning grant from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) for a pre-consultation planning meeting; $75,000 from the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) for the national consultation; and separate from these, a $33,000 CIHR Catalyst Grant to create an online survey to investigate these issues further. This is the first EJAF grant ever awarded for a national community consultation with sex-worker organizations to discuss pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in the sex industry workplace. For more information, watch our PrEP Resources page.
