HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis

HIV—or human immunodeficiency virus—is a virus spread through certain body fluids. Most people who get HIV get it through anal or vaginal sex or through sharing needles or syringes. HIV weakens a person’s immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection. There is no cure for HIV. However, you can control HIV with proper medical care. HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a medicine that significantly lowers your risk of HIV infection. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV.
