Preventing HIV infection is easier than ever before, but too few people are getting the message about how to protect themselves — close to 40,000 Americans get diagnosed each year. If you or someone you know is at risk for HIV, test your knowledge about HIV prevention and PrEP. Regular consistent use of PrEP can decrease your risk of infection, but since it’s relatively new (the first medication for PrEP was just approved in 2012) you may still have a lot to learn.
We hope that the quiz filled in any gaps in your HIV and PrEP knowledge. The key take-away: Understanding your personal risk can help determine if the preventative medication PrEP is right for you. To learn all about PrEP — including how to get a prescription, how much it costs, and more — check out our PrEP Guide.
