PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) is a once-daily pill for people who are not living with HIV and would like to remain HIV-negative. Currently, the only FDA approved and available medication for PrEP is Truvada®. It was approved for HIV prevention in 2012 and contains two medications: tenofovir and emtricitabine.
- Pre = before
- Exposure = coming into contact with HIV
- Prophylaxis = treatment to prevent an infection from happening
