Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to share this great news with any Canadians on this thread, specifically those living in the province of Ontario. Since January 1st, 2018, anyone younger than 25 years old will have all prescription medicines covered completely free by the government, and this includes HIV medication! This also means that HIV-negative individuals (under 25) can also get free coverage for PReP. Absolutely no sign-up or registration is required. Just go to the pharmacy, show your ID, and it's covered. I found out just this weekend when I picked up my Triumeq refill, and I'm really happy to see it covered. Also, more young people can get on PReP which will really help.
