PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis)

At our Kaka’ako Clinic we are able to offer PrEP and provide support services to help people be successful on PrEP.

PrEP is a daily pill to help keep you HIV-negative. PrEP is safe and generally well tolerated. It is a combination of two HIV medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine), sold under the name Truvada®. Studies have shown that PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV if it is used as prescribed. PrEP is much less effective when it is not taken consistently.


Who can take PrEP?

Anyone who feels they are at risk of HIV no matter their gender identity. PrEP can be prescribed for gay and bisexual men, for heterosexual men and women, for transgender individuals, and for genderqueer or nonbinary people. PrEP can also help people who inject drugs stay HIV-negative. Take this survey to see if PrEP is right for you!


How Can I Pay for PrEP?

PrEP is covered by most insurance programs including Medicaid. The level of your coverage will vary by the type of health insurance plan you have. There are also assistance programs that can help you pay for PrEP, regardless of your citizenship status.

Our skilled staff can help you navigate your insurance coverage and assistance programs options.
