PrEP

Here is how you can prevent HIV while you are having unprotected s.e.x. The life-saving pill (brand name Truvada) contains two medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine) that are used in combination with other medicines to treat HIV.

Back in the day, for one to avoid the risk of getting infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), they had to abstain from multiple s.e.xual affairs with different partners and had to use protection at all the time.

Thanks to technology and the changing of times, Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) allows people that do not have HIV but have a high risk of contracting the virus to prevent HIV infection by taking the pill daily.

The pill is reported to have the ability to keep the virus from establishing a permanent infection. On that note, when taken daily and correctly, PreP can save a life and is highly effective According to studies, PrEP reduces the risk of getting the deadly virus through sexual intercourse by about 99% when taken daily.

Whilst PreP is usually taken when one has exposed themselves to HIV, it is vital to always use a condom always for protection against other STDs.

This publication has observed that PreP is now easily accessible in pharmacies, HIV testing centres and public hospitals in Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa, and other countries.
