Public Health Wales funding enables expansion of HIV PrEP medication tracker, Preptrack, in multiple languages including Welsh
Funding from Public Health Wales has meant that an app designed to help PrEP users take their medication more effectively, is now available on Android and in multiple languages, including Welsh.
Preptrack is a free UK-based app which aims to support HIV prevention by reminding users when they need to take their PrEP – pre-exposure prophylactic – medication.
PrEP is an anti-retroviral medication which, if used correctly, is over 99% effective at preventing sexual transmission of HIV. However, in order to be effective, it is really important that the user takes the medication at the right time. Preptrack generates a schedule and creates reminders for the user when their dose is due to be taken, as well as signposting to relevant information and guidance.
