Find out how PrEP can support you. Ask your healthcare provider about PrEP.

Just one pill per day can help protect you and the people you love from HIV transmission. PrEP is more than 90% effective at reducing the risk of getting HIV when taken as directed. Finding out if PrEP is right for you is as simple as a phone call or doctor’s visit. Ask your healthcare provider how PrEP can support the life you love and care about



What is PrEP?


PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis.

PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a daily HIV prevention pill for HIV-negative individuals who are concerned about their HIV risk. Truvada is currently the only FDA-approved drug used as PrEP. Several studies have shown that PrEP can reduce the risk of becoming HIV-infected when taken as prescribed.

PrEP is highly effective against HIV but doesn’t protect against other STDs. Combining PrEP with condoms will provide additional protection against HIV and STDs. PrEP is not a vaccine against HIV nor a cure for HIV.

Protect yourself from other diseases by getting vaccinated for Hepatitis A, B and meningitis.
