Does PrEP prevent HIV? Facts to Consider.
- TRUVADA® and DESCOVY® are daily pills that are over 96% effective in preventing HIV.
- The medications can be prescribed to PHNTX patients at little to no cost.
- PrEP is not a substitute for condoms and does not prevent the spread of other sexually transmitted infections. You should always combine PrEP with safer sex methods (i.e. condoms, lube, regular testing) for full protection.
- PrEP should only be part of your overall sexual health and wellness. Regular follow-up visits with your provider that includes laboratory tests should also be included.
