PrEP – an HIV Prevention Option

(From The CDC)

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.
