Want to help us learn more about drug levels of generic PrEP in Vancouver?
 
Our team of researchers and service providers, led by Dr. Mark Hull at St. Paul’s Hospital and the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, are interested in learning more about what guys in Vancouver who are using generic PrEP know and think about PrEP, and to measure drug levels of their generic PrEP medication.

• This will take 10 -15 minutes of your time.
• Agree to undertake drug levels of your generic PrEP. This will take part at St Paul’s Hospital. You will need to have a baseline blood test, and then additional tests 1 and 4 hours after your medication dose.
 
Why are we doing this?
