PrEP Awareness Week


PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) means routinely taking prescription medicine before you're exposed to HIV to help reduce your chances of getting it.

PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV. PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99% when taken as prescribed.

The Alliance for Positive Health can help you get access to PrEP if needed.

Don't wait.
