摘要Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) with the use of antiretrovirals has been approved for HIV prevention in many western countries and internationally. PrEP is however not yet widely available in South East Asia. Awareness of PrEP among MSM in the region is very variable in different countries. While willingness of PrEP uptake is closely related to the extent of awareness, it is largely affected by factors at the individual level, e.g. financial consideration, risk perception, understanding of PrEP and convenience. Removal of social stigmata and secure data confidentiality can improve willingness of uptake. The diverse religious beliefs in South East Asia could have potential influence on PrEP uptake but there was very limited data in the region. There is no strong evidence suggesting substantial risk compensation among MSM who are on PrEP. As in other parts of the world, education on condom use to prevent other sexually transmitted diseases (STD) should be properly addressed rather than blaming PrEP as a sole cause of rise in STD among MSM.
