What is PrEP?
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is an innovative HIV prevention program that helps an HIV-negative person reduce the risk of infection if exposed to the virus through the use of of medications such as Truvada. Given the current rates of HIV infection in certain areas of the country, this is a prevention tool that individuals may consider to help them remain healthy.
The use of this program has shown positive results at significantly reducing risk of becoming infected. Those who benefit from using the treatment include a wide range of people such as:
-gay and bisexual men
-heterosexual men and women
-individuals who inject drugs
* The use of PrEP does not cure HIV, and it does not work in protecting against other sexually transmitted infections (STI), or preventing pregnancies.
