PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis)
PrEP, which stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a pill that when taken daily can reduce the chances of becoming HIV Positive through sex by more than 99% (CDC). Our Network of clinics provide access to PrEP across our 11-county region. You can talk to our PrEP Peer Navigator to learn more about PrEP in our area. We also have a PrEP coordinator who helps providers start PrEP clinics and build provider capacity.
