PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis
HAART’s got an answer to ending the HIV epidemic in Baton Rouge! It’s called PrEP. To promote this revolutionary drug, HAART kicked off our new outreach campaign in February 2016 with the premiere of an exclusive music video titled, "I Got An Answer". In 2012, the FDA approved Truvada, the brand name of PrEP (short for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis*) as an effective preventative measure for HIV. PrEP is an HIV prevention option that works by taking one pill every day. When taken every day, PrEP can provide a high level of protection against HIV, and is even more effective when combined with condoms and other prevention tools.
*The word "prophylaxis" means to prevent or control the spread of an infection or disease.
We invite you to educate your community about PrEP by sharing the "I Got An Answer" message on your social media networks.
