With an estimated 2.1 million new HIV cases diagnosed each year, emphasis is not only on treatment but also on preventative measures. Pre-exposure prophylaxis is a new form of biomedical prevention that was under investigation and is now supported as an effective prevention method by the CDC. When PrEP has been taken consistently, it has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV infection in people who are at high risk by up to 86%. PrEP is much less effective if participant efficacy and medication adherence is low. The purpose of this presentation is to inform people of this newly found, successful prevention method for HIV acquisition.
