PrEP is for people who do not have HIV and want added protection.
It is available by prescription as a daily pill or long acting injectable. In pill form, PrEP must be taken every day – like birth control but for HIV prevention.
When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective in preventing HIV. It does not protect against other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Condoms protect against most other STDs, as well as HIV and pregnancy.
