There is an exciting new development in HIV prevention that puts a new tool in the hands of HIV negative people. It’s called PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis,) and when taken daily; is more than 90% effective at preventing HIV infection.

Did you know:
Someone in the U.S. is infected with HIV every 9.5 minutes. The only ways to prevent contracting HIV are by abstaining
from sex, using clean needles, and avoiding contact with infected blood and bodily fluids. Sexually active
people can reduce the risk by taking precautions and using safer sex practices such as:

  • Consistently using latex or polyurethane condoms and dental dams with every partner, whether having vaginal,
    anal, or oral sex.
  • Using only water- or silicone-based lubricants. Oil-based lubricants (Vaseline, massage or baby oils) can
    cause a condom to break.
  • Limiting or reducing the number of sexual partners. A mutually monogamous relationship reduces your risk.
