What is PrEP?


Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is the use of HIV medication to reduce the chance of getting infected with HIV.


People who are at a high risk of contracting the virus take medication every day to prevent themselves from getting HIV.


PrEP can lower your chances of contracting HIV from sex by 99% when taken consistently, and even more than that when using protection.
