PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis)

Do you think you've been exposed to HIV?

Act Now. If you are worried the HIV virus might have just entered your body,
there is a treatment option that must be accessed within 72 hours. It’s not a 
substitute for a condom. It’s not a morning-after pill, and it’s not easy, but it’s 
there if you need it. Take action - Call the PEP Line 1300 767 161

Sex on holiday happens.

Whether planned or not, away from home we lose at least some of our inhibitions
and may take more risks than we would at home. 

This is ok, it’s what makes travelling so exciting.
Accepting this before we go is the first step to planning.


To help you get home with no more than a bruised bank account
and awesome memories, here are some useful tips:


  • Carry condoms. Pack condoms before you leave home. Condoms aren’t always readily available or good quality so grab some before you leave and carry a supply in your handbag or wallet. Holidays and a sense of freedom doesn’t make you less susceptible to STIs so take care every time you have sex.
  • Have an STI test before you go and after you get back. Click here for testing locations.
  • Sex workers in other countries are not always in a safe environment or hold the same standards of safer sex and STI testing as they do in Australia. Use condoms and insist on using them.
  • Holidays can encourage us to try drugs and drink more alcohol than we might at home. Your body is still your body, regardless of where you are – know your limits and keep to them. Drugs and alcohol can impair our ability to keep our wits about us and recognise dangers – in a foreign place this becomes even more important.
