PrEP and its in/accessibility in Canada

Questionnaire en Français (cliquez ici)

This survey is for people related to PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) in some way (even if not taking it/trying to) in Canada and to find about the potential barriers to its access, and their experience on the drug or with people taking the drug. With the results, The McGill Daily will publish an article about PrEP's significance in Canada and the different barriers it creates/changes/makes disappear. Feel free to not respond to any question by scrolling down, although we'd appreciate you reply to all questions applicable to you!

The survey will NOT collect your IP address and is anonymous. I count on your honesty to not take the survey if you're not related to Canada in any way!

The survey takes ~5 minutes to complete! please take time to respond to the last big questions, they are very important for the article! Thank you so much!  If you forgot something after submitting, don't worry, you can come back with the same link, there should be an option for you to edit your entries!

Please share it with friends!

If you have any additional concerns or comment, about the survey itself or anything, feel free to email them at culture@mcgilldaily.com.
