HIV Prevention

Today, more tools than ever are available to prevent HIV.

You can use strategies such as abstinence (not having sex), never sharing needles, and using condoms the right way every time you have sex.

You may also be able to take advantage of HIV prevention medicines such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). If you have HIV, there are many actions you can take, such as treatment, to stay healthy and prevent transmitting HIV to others.
