TO GET ON
Just by protecting yourself, you can help stop the spread of HIV.
It's NEVER too late to care...
WHAT IS PrEP?
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is a once daily pill that reduces the risk of HIV infection in Negative-Tested patients. Studies have shown that using PrEP on a daily basis can reduce the risk of HIV infection from sexual encounter by 99% and from intravenous drug use by 74% .
While its main function is to protect against HIV, PrEP does not prevent other STIs.

CAN I TAKE PrEP?
Since PrEP is a pre-exposure pill, the primary requirement for patients is to have an HIV-negative status.
PrEP can be an option if:
You’re in an ongoing sexual relationship with a partner living with HIV.
You’re having multiple casual sexual encounters and condom use is not always guaranteed.
You’re in a new sexual relationship but not yet aware of your sexual partners HIV status and not using condoms.
You’re not using condoms with partners who are at high risk of HIV infection.
You’ve shared injecting equipment or have been in a treatment program for injecting drug use.
