Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a way for people who do not have HIV but who are at substantial risk of getting it to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. The pill (brand name Truvada) contains two medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine) that are used in combination with other medicines to treat HIV. When someone is exposed to HIV through sex or injection drug use, these medicines can work to keep the virus from establishing a permanent infection.

PrEP 101:

PrEP is a way to prevent infection by taking one pill once a day.
Research has shown that PrEP can be up to 99% effective at preventing HIV when taken every day.

PrEP is not a cure for HIV and it cannot protect you from pregnancy and other sexually transmitted infections.
Calvert County Reproductive Health Center has a PrEP clinic that you can come to 410-535-5400 x332.

PrEP is covered by most insurance plans as well as Medicaid. There is also payment assistance programs available for people who are insured or uninsured. Your Health Department Nurse Case Manager can help you figure out insurance coverage and assistance programs.
