Learn What PrEP Is
PrEP, short for pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a prescription medication for HIV- individuals at high risk of getting HIV. Studies show PrEP is between 92–100% effective in preventing HIV infection, when taken once-daily as prescribed.
Understand the Barriers to PrEP
Numerous barriers exist for those individuals who might benefit from PrEP:
Help Increase Access to PrEP
- Awareness among potential users
- Lack of physician education
- High cost (e.g., doctor visits, labs, etc.)
- Disproportionate usage in racial minorities
- Uncertainty about where to access PrEP
PrEP should be considered part of a comprehensive prevention plan that includes a discussion about adherence to PrEP, condom use, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and other risk reduction methods.
Be Prepared to Talk About PrEP
Start the health sex conversation with your patients. It can be hard to discuss sex and sexual health, but doing so can help build a more mutual relationship to address patient risk factors for HIV.
