PrEP for HIV prevention

Planned Parenthood of Illinois offers PrEP HIV prevention services and counseling at all 16 health centers in 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 with your local Planned Parenthood health center. Your appointment will include a PrEP counseling session and a HIV test.
