What is PrEP?

PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a once-daily pill that reduces your chances of getting HIV through sex by 99%.

How does PrEP work?

  • PrEP stops HIV from entering and spreading in your body.
  • PrEP reaches maximum protection after 7 days of daily use when HIV risk is related to anal sex and after 21 days when HIV risk is related to vaginal sex.
  • PrEP is even more effective at preventing HIV when used with other prevention tools like condoms.

Who is PrEP for?

  • People who are sexually active.
  • People who inject drugs.
  • Anyone at risk of getting HIV. Ask your provider if PrEP is right for you!
