HIV PreventionThe best protection is to be in a committed, monogamous relationship with someone who does not have a sexually transmitted infection. For all other situations, use a condom and follow safe sex practices. PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is an FDA approved medication regime to prevent the transmission of HIV for those that are at high risk for HIV infection. One pill once a day can protect you from HIV infection. Please visit the PrEP Services page on our website for more information PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylactic) is a treatment for victims of sexual assault. Careteam+ works with area hospitals and the Rape Crisis Center to provide education and PEP treatment. PEP is not provided for individuals who have engaged in consensual high-risk sex.
Careteam+ provides confidential, compassionate care –one patient at a time.
