GET PREP TENN
Prep is a daily pill that can greatly reduce your risk of HIV - when taken correctly, PrEP is more than 90% effective at preventing HIV infection. While PrEP protects you from HIV, condom use is always encouraged to help protect against STIs, pregnancy and HIV. To get PrEP, talk with a Navigator who can then help you contact a doctor who prescribes PrEP.
