PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis)
What is PrEP?
PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a way that HIV negative people can greatly reduce the risk of HIV infection by taking daily anti-retroviral medications.
Who is PrEP for?
PrEP is for HIV negative folks who might be exposed to HIV through unprotected sex or sharing needles, or have an HIV positive partner.
Is PrEP effective?
PrEP has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV transmission up to 92%. Recent studies in 2015 have shown zero seroconversion with subjects taking PrEP.
Although PrEP is considered highly effective against HIV, It does not protect against other STIs. It is recommended to use PrEP along with condoms, and other risk reduction practices.
Where can I get PrEP?
Project HOPE has a PrEP Assistance Program! Our PrEPspert Jeff can help answer any questions you may have and assist with getting you on PrEP.
