Preventing HIV

There are many ways to prevent HIV. Condoms, dental dams and lube are important tools in preventing HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. PrEP is effective in preventing HIV and post exposure-medication PEP prevents HIV infection if taken before 72 hours from exposure has passed.

Treating HIV

Hiv medication has revolutionized HIV treatment in the past decades. The lifelong medication helps keep a person living with HIV healthy and stops HIV from transmitting, even during sex without a condom.
