A daily pill to prevent HIV.


Studies have shown PrEP, short for pre-exposure prophylaxis, is between 92–100% effective in preventing HIV infection, when taken as prescribed. It’s most effective when combined with condoms and other prevention strategies.

 


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.

If you’re not sure if you’re at higher risk for HIV after answering the questions, reach out to us and one of our Health Educators will be in touch:



Steps to PrEP


1

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 and on our mobile testing van throughout many Southwestern Ohio counties.
1

Get on PrEP.


We can help. Caracole is home to an on-site PrEP clinc and we also have partnerships with other PrEP providers in the region. PrEP assistance is available for those who qualify.
1

Be consistent.


Missing doses of the daily PrEP pill results in much lower protection. Remember to take your medication every day.
1

Ask questions.


Be engaged in your own care and treatment. PrEP does not prevent other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Learn the important safety information about PrEP and how to stay healthy.
