PrEP

PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a one pill-per-day medication that can help prevent HIV. PrEP is meant to be used regularly with other prevention options. If you think that PrEP might be right for you, we can work with you to reduce your HIV risk.

PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) is an emergency medicine that must be taken within 72 hours after a one-time encounter to reduce your risk of HIV infection.

Our services vary between locations. Find locations near you providing this service.

Reasons to consider PrEP:

  • Are you having unprotected sex?
  • Are you having unprotected sex with an HIV-positive partner?
  • Are you having unprotected sex with someone whose HIV status is unknown?
  • Are you having unprotected sex with more than one person?
  • Have you had a sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the past six months?
  • Have you shared needles for injection drug use, tattooing, or piercing?
  • Have you been prescribed post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)?
  • Do you think you are at a high risk of getting HIV?

If you are HIV negative and can answer “yes” to any of these questions, PrEP may be right for you.

“In a positive manner it made me be more considerate and responsible to take care of myself and others. It’s a great treatment and I hope that the people who don’t have a stable partner consider taking it.”
