Know your status: Get yourself tested and prevent HIV with PrEP.

PrEP

PrEP is a daily medication you can take to reduce your risk of getting HIV, even if your partner may be positive. PrEP works best when it is combined with condoms and other prevention methods. When taken correctly and consistently, PrEP can be more than 90 percent effective in protecting against HIV.

PrEP might be right for you if: 

  • Your partner is HIV-positive
  • You’re someone who doesn’t regularly use condoms during sex with partners whose HIV status is unknown, and may be at high risk
  • You have injected drugs in the past 6 months and have shared needles or been in drug treatment for IV drug use in the past 6 months
  • Your partner is HIV-negative and either you or your partner has sex with someone whose HIV status is unknown, and may be at high risk
