Description

There are many prevention methods to help youth remain HIV-negative. Pre-exposure prophylaxis, referred to as PrEP, is one way for people who are HIV-negative and at high risk of getting HIV to protect themselves. Youth-serving programs can help youth know all their options by educating them about PrEP and linking them to PrEP services in the community.
