What is PrEP?
PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, and is an anti-HIV medication that keeps HIV-negative people from becoming infected. PrEP is approved by the FDA and has been shown to be safe and effective. A single pill taken once daily is highly effective against HIV when taken every day. The medication interferes with HIV’s ability to copy itself in your body after you’ve been exposed. This prevents it from establishing an infection and making you sick.
