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?
