Do You Have The Facts On PrEP? What is it?
“PrEP” stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. The word “prophylaxis” means to prevent or control the spread of an infection or disease. The goal of PrEP is to prevent an HIV-negative person from acquiring HIV from an HIV-positive partner. This is done by taking medication every day. When taken every day, PrEP has been found to reduce the likelihood of HIV infection by up to 92%. This effectiveness increases when combined with condoms which are also necessary for the prevention of other sexually transmitted diseases. See more resources of information below.
