PrEP is used by people who are HIV negative to help prevent them from getting HIV. It involves taking a prescription pill that contains two medications. It is very important to take the pill every day for it to work.

Taking PrEP also involves seeing a doctor or nurse every three months for HIV testing, screening for other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), monitoring for possible side effects, and ongoing support.
