Everyone has sex! Many have had risky sex. Some have contracted HIV as a result. What if I told you there was a way to reduce the chance of catching HIV by up to 90%. Would you be excited or suspicious?
PrEP, or Pre-exposure prophylaxis is a once a day pill regimen that HIV negative people can take to prevent HIV infection. Sounds great, right? Could be a gateway to ending the epidemic, yes? Then why are so many Black and Latino gay men (who are at highest risk of infection) still in the dark about how to access it?
Dr. Leo Moore is my guest and we will discuss all things PrEP. This show is a must listen for anyone who is having sex and/or knows someone who is.
