PrEP is an effective way for individuals to protect themselves from contracting HIV.
Did you know that D.C. has the highest prevalence of HIV in the United States and one of the highest new infections in adolescents and young adults? PrEP can help reduce the risk for your teen and your own risk from contracting HIV.
Risk of getting HIV from sex can be even lower if you combine PrEP with condoms and other prevention methods. Plus, when using condoms, an individual protects himself from other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
