PrEP for Peace of Mind

People at high risk of being exposed to HIV can reduce their risk with medications called PrEP and PEP.

PrEP is the pill to prevent HIV, and it's up to 99% effective when taken correctly. If you do think you've been exposed to HIV, PEP can help reduce your risk if taken within 72 hours.

Taking PrEP and PEP empowers you: You can have a healthy sex life and protect yourself without having to rely on your partners.

PrEP

If you are at high risk of being exposed to HIV, you can take medication daily to reduce your risk of contracting the virus.

PEP

After you are exposed, you can take medications within 72 hours of exposure to reduce your risk of getting HIV.

Rapid HIV Test

People who are at high risk for HIV exposure are also at risk for contracting syphilis. Syphilis is easily cured, but can be dangerous if left untreated.
