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.
