What is PrEP?
PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis and is a medication that can reduce your risk of getting HIV from sexual contact or intravenous drug use. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective at preventing HIV infection. People who are high risk (e.g., individuals with an HIV positive sexual partner, do not consistently use condoms, or share needles or syringes) should discuss a potential PrEP prescription with a qualified provider.
HIV prevention services we offer include:
- Consultation with HIV/ID physician
- HIV testing
- Prescription of PrEP medication
- Vaccines for Hepatitis A and B, and HPV as indicated
- Individual risk reduction counseling
