It’s called PrEP.
Studies show that PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99% when taken as prescribed. It's most effective when combined with condoms and other prevention strategies.
Get tested, get PrEP’d for free:
Know your status.
Your first step is getting tested. You must be HIV negative before starting and while taking PrEP. Caracole offers FREE, anonymous or confidential HIV testing at our Northside office. Learn more about our testing services.
Not sure if you are at risk for HIV and need PrEP?
*The purpose of this questionnaire is to educate and inform. It cannot establish whether or note you have HIV or if you will get HIV in the future. It is no substitute for professional care by a doctor or other qualified medical professional. It is provided on the understanding that it does not constitute medical or other professional advice or service. Instead, we encourage you to discuss your particular situation with your own health care provider and schedule an HIV test.
Get on PrEP.*
We can help. Caracole has partnerships with PrEP providers in the region. *PrEP assistance is available for those who qualify.
