HIV- PrEP and Treatment

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

Pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP, is a way to prevent HIV infection for people who are at substantial risk by taking  ONLY one pill every day. This pill (brand name Truvada) contains two medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine) that are used in combination with other medicines to treat HIV. When someone is exposed to HIV through sex or IV drug use, these medicines can work to keep the virus from establishing a permanent infection.

When taken consistently, PrEP has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV infection in people who are at high risk by up to 92%. PrEP is much less effective if it is not taken consistently.
