HIV Prevention: Testing, PrEP, and PEP
We are committed to supporting local, state, and national initiatives working to end the HIV epidemic through providing comprehensive HIV prevention and treatment services.
PrEP: Pre-exposure prophylaxis is a HIV prevention option that works by taking one pill every day. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is proven to be highly effective towards preventing the transmission of HIV. The RCA Community Health Center in partnership with Avita Pharmacy, offer our patients PrEP services which include education, lab testing and medication management.
PEP: Post-Exposure prophylaxis works by taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potential exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected. PEP must be started within 72 hours after the incident occurred to be effective.
