  • HIV? BBP!

    Each year, an estimated 50,000 individuals become infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the United States. A new prevention strategy, Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), is intended for high-risk populations to reduce their risk of becoming infected with HIV. PrEP includes daily medication and routine follow-up. When used consistently, PrEP is shown to reduce the risk of HIV infection. If delivered effectively and used in combination with other proven prevention methods, PrEP may help address the HIV epidemic in the United States.
