PrEP for Women


PPM Women logo

 PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a pill to help keep you HIV negative. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective. PrEP is safe and generally well tolerated. Most insurance plans (public and private) cover PrEP.

PrEP works for women, men, people of transgender experience, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, youth, and people who inject drugs.

You can use PrEP alone or in combination with other prevention tools like condomsPEP, and U=U to reduce your chances of getting HIV and take charge of your sexual health!
