PrEP

What does PrEP do?

PrEP is a daily medication regimen that helps prevent HIV in those who are HIV- Negative.

Who is a good candidate for PrEP?

  • Individuals with an HIV-Positive Partner
  • Injection drug users the share needles or equipment
  • Individuals who have multiple partners and are not using condoms consistently
  • Individuals who recently had an STI Diagnosis
  • Individuals with inconsistent condom usage

Does PrEP work? 

Yes! PrEP has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV transmission by up to 92% among men who have sex with men (MSM), a group disproportionately impacted by HIV.  There have been several large scale studies for PrEP which have included populations such as Men who have sex with Men, Men who have sex with Women, Women who have sex with men, and people who inject drugs.

PrEP is also not a stand alone prevention measure. PrEP alone does not protect from other Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s) such as herpes, gonorrhea, Syphilis, etc.Using both condoms and PrEP increases protection from all STIs including HIV.
