PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. PrEP is a way for people who don’t have HIV but who are at very high risk of getting it to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. The pill contains two medicines that are also used to treat HIV. If you take PrEP and are exposed to HIV through sex or injection drug use, these medicines can work to keep the virus from taking hold in your body. Source: aids.gov
To make an appointment for PrEP care, please call WVU Medicine Medical Specialties at 304-598-4855 and ask for an appointment with Infectious Diseases.
