What is Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis?
More recognized as PrEP, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis is a long-term course of HIV prevention drugs taken by HIV negative people as a protection against HIV infection.
Numerous studies have shown that when PrEP is taken daily as the prescribed dosage will reduce the risk of getting HIV by sexual intercourse by 92% to 99%.
At our affiliated clinic, this procedure will also include consultation, a free HIV blood test and PrEP.
How It Works
Reverse transcriptase is one of the enzymes present in HIV, Human Immunodeficiency Virus. PrEP will work to block this enzyme, preventing more copies of the virus from replicating in the body.
PrEP is available either in the form of pills or injections. Consumptions and duration of effectiveness may differ accordingly. At our affiliated clinic, PrEP pills will be used for prescriptions.
