HIV Combination Prevention
The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) supports a combination of approaches to prevent the transmission of HIV, which includes but is not limited to correct and consistent condom use, regular HIV testing, the adoption of Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), maintaining an undetectable viral load and negotiated safety, etc.
People living with HIV or people at high-risk of acquiring HIV should adopt a combination of approaches that best fits their needs to prevent transmission.
According to the Recommended HIV/AIDS Strategies for Hong Kong (2017-2021) from Advisory Council on AIDS, no single HIV prevention strategy will be sufficient to control the HIV epidemic. In order to prevent HIV transmission, AIDS Concern recommends people at risk of infection to use at least two of the above approaches.
