Watch this video that presents basic information on PrEP, how to access and determine if its right for you. The video also promotes communication between gay and bisexual men and their health care providers about PrEP as a prevention option.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is when people at very high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected. PrEP can stop HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body. It is highly effective for preventing HIV if used as prescribed, but it is much less effective when not taken consistently.

By Arielle Kass - The Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionBy mid-March, Zina Age still hadn’t heard back from Fulton County about her request for $200,000 in grant money to test 1,200 people for HIV. She continued the work of Aniz, Inc., the organization she runs, on the assumption that the money she had received for years would come through.
Then a list of groups to be funded was circulated. It was missing several other local organizations that test high-risk residents and help them get care. Leaders of local HIV and AIDS-prevention organizations were up in arms.
