Have you heard about the pill to prevent HIV infection?
PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis and uses an anti-HIV medication to help prevent an HIV-negative person from contracting the virus that causes AIDS.
If taken properly and as recommended, PrEP can help reduce the chances of becoming infected with HIV by up to 92%. PrEP has been approved by the FDA and should be used in combination with other prevention tools such as condoms.
Be-PrEpared aims to increase knowledge and awareness about HIV/AIDS, and the use of PrEP as a reliable prevention option, though a comprehensive women's health approach.

Be-PrEPared Increasing Knowledge & Awareness about HIV/AIDS and PrEP utilizing a Comprehensive Women’s Health Approach was funded by Gilead Sciences. Funds are not used to promote or purchase Truvada for PrEP as an HIV biomedical prevention strategy. The Be-PrEPared health education curriculum, Stories in Sisterhood and educational resources were created to raise knowledge and awareness about HIV/AIDS prevention efforts. This includes the use of biomedical prevention strategies such as PrEP, and to increase capacity for addressing health disparities and negative health outcomes among cis and trans women of color.
