Prevent HIV image





Individuals who are HIV negative can take a daily pill to reduce their risk of getting HIV. It’s called PrEP!

PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, is highly effective for preventing HIV. Studies show that PrEP 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.


Steps to PrEP:


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.

Get on PrEP.*

We can help. Caracole has partnerships with PrEP providers in the region. *PrEP assistance is available for those who qualify.

Be consistent.

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

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.

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.
