Empower Yourself - Take Control of Your Health with PrEP

PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, which is a daily drug regimen to help prevent HIV. It involves a daily pill called Truvada that can help those at increased risk avoid HIV. Truvada contains two antiretroviral medicines that interfere with HIV’s ability to grow and take hold in the body once one is exposed to the virus. When taken daily, the risk of contracting HIV can be reduced by more than 90 percent.

PrEP is for anyone with clinically identified risk factors for HIV. It's an option for you regardless of your sex or sexuality.
