What should I know before I start taking PrEP? - PrEP, part 3

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about what they need to know before starting pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), which is medicine that can prevent HIV infection in those persons who are HIV-negative but are at high risk for getting it from sex or injection drug use. It explains that PrEP is only available by prescription, and discusses the importance of HIV testing and regular follow-up visits with a health care provider. The document clarifies that PrEP cannot be started after exposure to HIV, and that it does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), hepatitis C, or other drug-related infections.
