Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is medication that can help prevent HIV infection. It involves taking a pill called Truvada which, if taken daily over a period of time, can prevent HIV from infecting healthy cells.
The Los Angeles LGBT center joins with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in encouraging sexually active gay and bisexual men to consider PrEP. Meet with one of our doctors or other healthcare providers to learn whether PrEP is right for you. If it is, we can write and fill a prescription for it.
Most insurance plans cover PrEP—if yours doesn’t, we can help you qualify for financial assistance programs.
