PrEP & PEP Navigation
HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis & Post Exposure Prophylaxis treatment is designed to reduce or control the risk of infectious diseases.
PrEP Navigation Services promote rapid access to medical care and resources as well as assistance in reestablishing medical care. Our HIV Prevention Specialist provides education about HIV disease, establishing effective patient/doctor relationships, medication adherence and risk reduction tips. PrEP Navigation Services are offered to a patient as long as there is a need for continued services. There is a rolling enrollment with intake paperwork reviewed every 6 months for consistency.
Studies have shown that consistent use of PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99% and from injection drug use by at least 74%. Adding other prevention methods, such as condom use, along with PrEP can reduce a person’s risk of getting HIV even further.
