PrEPTake charge of your sexual health!
What is PrEP?
PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) is a medicine regimen for anyone who wants to stay HIV-negative. PrEP can stop HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body.
PrEP is available in 3 different forms:
Daily Pill (Most Popular!)
Taking one pill a day will prevent you from becoming HIV positive.
There is also an alternative to daily PrEP called On-Demand PrEP (2-1-1). It is extremely effective when used as prescribed, but it is not for everyone.
PrEP medication in the form of an injection every two months is also an available option.
How can I get PrEP?
APLA Health’s clinics provide exceptional PrEP care from knowledgeable healthcare providers. In addition to PrEP medical care and PrEP navigation services, our clinics also offer HIV testing, STD testing/treatment, primary care, behavioral health services including mental health and substance abuse counseling, and benefits navigation.
