How to Prevent HIV

There’s a simple 3-step process for protecting yourself and your partners, and preventing the spread of HIV.

1) Make sex safer with condoms and/or PrEP and if you're exposed to HIV start PEP medication within 72 hours.

2)Talk to your partners. Done be afraid to ask their status and what are they doing to prevent HIV.

3) Don't know your status? Get tested! If you're positive, start treatment right away, to protect your health and so you don’t pass HIV to partners.

What's Your STI IQ?

You might not want to think about sexually transmitted infections, but ignoring STIs won’t protect you.
