HIV PrEP Clinic
WHAT IS PREP?
PrEP is a pill that (when taken daily) can significantly reduce your risk for contracting HIV. It is recommended for HIV-negative people who are at high-risk for contracting HIV. Consider PrEP if you are:
- In a relationship with someone who is living with HIV
- In an open (non-monogamous) relationship and do not use condoms
- A man who has anal sex with other men without a condom
- Injecting drugs that are not prescribed by a medical provider or share needles
- A person who provides sex for money, drugs, food, shelter or transportation
