What is PrEP?

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a treatment to help at-risk individuals greatly reduce their chances of acquiring HIV infection. Patients at risk for infection take a pill called Truvada once daily. When taken as directed, along with condom use, PrEP can reduce the risk of HIV Infection by up to 92 percent. 

Where can I get PrEP?

PrEP is available through The University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) and the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department. An appointment with a health-care provider is necessary before PrEP can be prescribed.
