SEE ADDED LINK: PrEP is a pre-exposure drug regimen which has proven effective in preventing HIV infection. The only drawback is the cost of the drug used. Truvada, recently approved by Health Canada earlier this year, can cost as much as a $1,000 per month. Very few private insurance companies are covering its cost for clients. A provincial group of stakeholders has launched “List PrEP Now”, a push to have Ontario Minister of Health, Dr. Eric Hoskins, list Truvada on Ontario’s Public Drug Program, thereby covering the cost of the drug provincially.
