Prior to this "game changing development", PrEP was only available at a cost of around $1,000 for 30 Truvada pills. the foundation said. Many PrEP users resorted to importing their medication from overseas for about US$36 per month.
New Zealand will be one of the first countries in the world to publicly fund PrEP for HIV prevention, which was one of the Labour Party's election promises.
The Government's drug-buying agency has extended funding for an HIV treatment to include those at high risk of infection in a bid to reduce transmission rates.
"Condoms are fully funded on prescription and are highly effective, but rates of HIV infection are still increasing in New Zealand".
"Condoms continue to be the primary and recommended method of preventing transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections", Fitt said.
The drug is already funded as part of a treatment for those infected with HIV but will now also be free for those not infected but at high risk of contracting the virus.
The NZAF said it was a very important step in addressing one of the health inequalities faced by trans men.
Truvada, which is also used in HIV treatment, is now the only drug approved for use as PrEP by HIV-negative people.
"It's a giant leap forward for our ambitious goal of ending new HIV transmissions in New Zealand by 2025", Dr Myers said. Recent studies have proven that it also works as an effective preventative against HIV.
