PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a prescription medication regimen recently made available for people who are at substantial risk of getting HIV. PrEP is a powerful HIV prevention tool and can be combined with condoms and other prevention methods to provide even greater protection than when used alone. People who use PrEP must commit to taking the drug every day and seeing their health care provider for follow-up every three (3) months. If you are interested in discussing if a prescription for the pill (Truvada) is right for you, make a 40-minute appointment with a health care provider at PUSH (494-1700). Remember, there is no charge for a provider visit during the semester if you are currently a full-time student. There are charges for laboratory work, which will be ordered by your provider. The medication is available on campus at the Purdue University Pharmacy — $20 per month with the Purdue Student Insurance.
