PrEP for HIV prevention

Planned Parenthood of Illinois offers PrEP HIV prevention services and counseling at all health centers across Illinois.

What is PrEP

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a daily oral pill that reduces the risk of HIV infection. This medication is only effective if you are HIV-negative and take PrEP daily. 

Who is PrEP for?

PrEP is for anyone who is HIV-negative and at risk of contracting HIV from sexual activities or intravenous drug use. PrEP is especially recommended for those with a partner(s) with unknown STI status, an HIV-positive status, and/or individuals who do not regularly use condoms during sexual activities. 

How do I get PrEP?

Make an appointment online or by phone at your local PPIL health center. Your appointment will include a PrEP counseling session and a HIV test. 

Getting to Zero Illinois

Planned Parenthood of Illinois is a part of the Getting to Zero Illinois campaign, which is a state-wide initiative to end the HIV epidemic in the state by 2030.
