Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

Definition - What does Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) mean?

Pre-exposure prophylaxis refers to preventive medication for people who are not HIV-positive but are considered to be at substantial risk of infection. It involves taking a pill that contains tenofovir and emtricitabine. Daily intake is necessary for the medication to be effective. Pre-exposure prophylaxis is another layer of protection from HIV infection, on top of condoms and other preventive measures.

Kinkly explains Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

Tenofovir and emtricitabine are used alongside other drugs to treat HIV infection. As pre-exposure prophylaxis, they work to keep the virus from becoming a full-blown infection. According to studies, when pre-exposure prophylaxis is taken regularly, there is a 92% decrease in the risk of being infected with HIV among people who are highly exposed to the virus. It is less effective when intake is irregular.
