Since late 2001, the Department of Health (DOH) has monitored provision of nonoccupational post-exposure prophylaxis (NPEP) for HIV in WA. Up to 31 December 2007, 214 cases received NPEP.
Gay Community Periodic Surveys (2002 and 2004) showed that the Perth community awareness of NPEP availability was low.
