PrEP for HIV

PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a pill that HIV negative people can take regularly to reduce the chance of being picking up HIV from sex or injection drug use. This safe and effective prophylactic is a great part of our sexual health toolkit to prevent HIV transmission. 

For a lot of us, PrEP is free through a program by BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS
