Get Prepped for PrEP

PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. PrEP is a medication taken by people who don’t have HIV, but who are at high risk of getting infected. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is very effective (estimated 99%) at preventing HIV infection.

PrEP is available only by prescription, and typically requires an HIV test to be performed. If you are local to Rhode Island, our clinicians can refer you to for testing through the Miriam Hospital clinic.

Outside Rhode island? Use the following link to find the nearest clinic. Many may have specific times or require an appointment, so calling ahead is highly recommended.
