Prescribing PrEP: You Can Do It

If you can prescribe medicine, you can prescribe PrEP. There’s nothing special about PrEP. It doesn’t have to be an HIV doctor or an infectious disease doctor.

Sometimes people need a refresher of what to do. And there’s a lot of great resources, like on HIV Nexus and other places, where you can make sure that you’re up to date.

Always have to plug: the guidelines, are also fantastic and give people a great sense of how to do it and what the right monitoring is.

So the bottom line is, if you have a license and you’re a medical provider that can prescribe medicines, you can prescribe PrEP.

And we want you to because you reach people in places where infectious disease doctors and HIV doctors may not.

And, so, talk about PrEP, and you’re gonna be a part of ending the HIV epidemic in the United States.
