EPIC-NSW is a study run by the Kirby Institute and funded by the NSW Government, in collaboration with a number of partners such as sexual health services and clinics. EPIC – NSW aims to assess the impact of the rapid expansion in access to PrEP amongst those at highest risk of acquiring HIV, in particular, if it will lead to a drop in new HIV infections.
The study estimates that there are around 3,700 eligible high-risk people in NSW. Further enrolment of high-risk people can occur. EPIC-NSW is a criteria-based access program – which means eligibility for the study will be determined on the basis of HIV risk criteria. The aim is to rapidly enrol eligible people and follow them for up to two years while they take PrEP.
