What is PrEP?
PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis and refers to the use of antiretroviral drugs for prevention of HIV. When taken correctly, PrEP works as a chemical shield, preventing HIV acquisition. There are a limited but growing number of PrEP products approved for use today, including pills, injections and vaginal rings, and more are moving through research and development. Some PrEP products have shown very high efficacy in clinical trials. Others have shown moderate efficacy or some efficacy in preventing HIV, while offering other beneficial features that some users prefer.
The development of PrEP products as interventions in HIV prevention represents one of the greatest achievements in the global response to HIV. The list of now approved products is growing. The list of products in development also needs continued investment so everyone who needs to protect themselves finds a tool that works for them.
