Pre-exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a new prevention method for significantly reducing the risk of HIV infection. A person who is HIV-negative takes a pill called Truvada (emitricitabine/tenofovir) once a day. If HIV transmission occurs, PrEP works by making it harder for HIV to multiply in your body and attack your infection-fighting cells (CD4 cells, aka T cells). Learn more about PrEP.
