Establishing effective routines of taking medication requires ongoing effort amidst the variabilities of everyday life. Drawing on 40 qualitative interviews with Australian PrEP users (who used a variety of dosing strategies, including daily and on-demand), we conceptualise PrEP dosing as a domestic practice, involving routines, planning, and experimentation. This presentation offers insights into how people can be better supported to use PrEP.
