PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) at Drexel Medicine
What is PrEP?
Pre = Before
Exposure = Coming in contact with
Prophylaxis = Something that prevents infection
PrEP is a safe and effective once a day pill that helps prevent HIV. PrEP is a prevention option for HIV-negative persons who are at risk of HIV and is more than 90% effective in preventing HIV when taken consistently. PrEP is available for at risk HIV-negative individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
If you are HIV negative and answer “yes” to any of the question below. PrEP could be right for you.
In the past 12 months have you:
- Had sex with an HIV-positive person or a person whose HIV status you don't know?
- Used condoms only sometimes or not at all during sex?
- Been diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection (i.e. gonorrhea, chlamydia or syphilis)?
- Used needles or syringes used by another person?
Drexel Medicine offers PrEP at our Family and Internal Medicine practices, in addition to Partnership Comprehensive Care Practice and Women's Care Center. Drexel Medicine's PrEP Navigator will help connect you to a PrEP provider and will offer additional resources and continued support.
