PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) for HIV

PrEP is a powerful prevention tool that can help to reduce the risk of acquiring HIV infection. When medication is taken daily, and in conjunction with safer sexual practices, PrEP has been shown to reduce the possibility of acquiring HIV infection by more than 90% in people who are at high risk. People who take PrEP medication must commit to taking it every day and must see their health care provider for follow-up every 3 months for HIV testing.

Although this medication can be provided by primary care physicians, some patients prefer to see an HIV/ID specialist.  Our providers at the Memorial Campus are trained to educate patients about PrEP and, if indicated, prescribe the medication and provide essential follow-up. To learn more about this service or to book an appointment, please call our dedicated line at 508-713-2632.
