In July 2012, the US Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Truvada(TDF/FTC) for use as PrEP in HIV prevention in sexually active HIV–negative individuals. PrEP should be used in conjunction with other prevention methods to reduce the risk of infection.
Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a comprehensive HIV prevention strategy that involves the daily use of antiretroviral medications to reduce the risk of HIV infection in HIV-negative individuals. Starting on January 1st, 2018, WNCAP’s contract pharmacy will begin providing PrEP services to its clients and their families.
