PrEP- Pre Exposure Prophylaxis For HIV

  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP refers to the use of HIV medication by people who are HIV-negative in order to reduce their risk of HIV infection.

    When taken on a daily basis, PrEP  significantly reduces the risk of becoming infected with HIV (by up to 99%) if exposed during unprotected sex.  The HIV medication used contains two antiviral medicines, Tenofovir and Emtricitabine, which are also used to treat people who already have HIV infection.   It is generally very well tolerated.   These are the same drugs used to suppress the virus in people living with HIV. A full sexual health testing is done with every prescription.

    We have two doctors at CityMed who are able to prescribe this medication- they are Dr Ravi Sandhu and Dr David McKenzie.
