PrEP Basics

PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis.  PrEP can help prevent you from getting HIV if you are exposed to the virus.

How Does It Work?

In several studies of PrEP, the risk of getting HIV infection was much lower — up to 92% lower — for those who took the medicines consistently than for those who didn’t take the pill.

Some of the same medicines prescribed for the treatment of HIV can also be prescribed for its prevention.

When taken every day, PrEP can provide a high level of protection against HIV, and is even more effective when it is combined with condoms and other prevention tools.
