Get Started with HIV Prevention with PrEP
Talk to one of our providers or prevention team members about getting PrEP for free or low-cost.
PrEP is taken once a day, at the same time each day with or without food. In order to effectively prevent against HIV, consistency is key.
When taking PrEP correctly, you’ll have a 92%-99% reduction in HIV risk.
Lower your HIV risk with just one pill a day
If you’re HIV-negative and sexually active, you can benefit from taking Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and prevent contracting HIV. Ask us about free or low-cost options.
What you should know about PrEP:
If you’re sexually active, take control of your sexual healthy by protecting yourself from HIV. Reduce the risk of HIV with just one pill a day and enjoy peace of mind and a healthier life.
PrEP is an additional tool in your HIV prevention plan. If you are ever exposed to HIV but you’ve been taking PrEP daily, you’ll be better protected from the risk of transmission.
If you’re sexually active and HIV-negative, start protecting yourself against HIV today. Talk with our prevention team about whether PrEP is right for you.
Why would someone who doesn’t have HIV decide to take PrEP?
Like the birth control pill, PrEP is an oral medication taken daily by people who are sexually active and want to be safe. This medication is a game-changer for HIV prevention because it offers an effective way to reduce the risk of a potentially fatal virus.
