PRE-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS CLINIC

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is the use of anti-HIV medication to prevent the spread of the disease to HIV negative individuals who may be at risk for contracting the disease.

One pill, taken consistently once a day, helps prevent the spread of HIV if it enters a person's blood stream.

Who is at risk for HIV/AIDS?

According to a CDC study released in February 2016, gay and bisexual men are the most affected by HIV in the United States. Men of color who have sex with men have even higher rates of infection, especially African-American men. Women who have sex with men are also at risk for the disease.

If you are at significant risk for HIV you should ask your provider about starting PrEP.
