Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

What is PrEP?

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is an HIV prevention method in which HIV-negative people take a daily pill to reduce their risk of becoming infected. When used consistently, PrEP has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV-1 infection among adult men and women at very high risk for HIV infection through sex or injection drug use. TRUVADA® has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration for use in PrEP. If you are interested, your prescribing medical provider can answer your questions.
