Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is an HIV Prevention method that HIV-negative people can take daily to help prevent HIV infection. Currently, Truvada is the only approved medication for PrEP. When taken regularly, PrEP is a powerful HIV prevention tool, but does not prevent STDs. Truvada may not reach its full ability to protect against HIV for several days once begun. PrEP should be used in conjunction with other prevention methods to reduce the risk of infection. Truvada should be used under the care of a medical provider.
To obtain additional information about PrEP, please call: (239)-461-6100.
The CDC's Are You Ready For PrEP video covers PrEP basics, access, and other important information about this HIV prevention option.
