 Curious about PrEP and PEP?

A SMALL BLUE PILL MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE

PrEP is a CDC-recommended therapy for those who are HIV-negative and at substantial risk for acquiring HIV. Daily PrEP use can lower one’s risk of acquiring HIV through sexual contact by more than 90%, according to the CDC.

PrEP is a medication that must be prescribed by a doctor. Prior to speaking to a medical provider, a PrEP Talk can answer your basic questions and provide the knowledge you need to decide your next step.

Make your appointment for a PrEP Talk today!

PEP is a treatment that can prevent HIV infection if started within 72 hours
of exposure. If you think you may have been exposed to HIV, visit The DOCK
or another medical provider that provides PEP as soon as possible.
