The Prince George's County Health Department PrEP Program provides comprehensive education and clinical services for Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). PrEP, a biomedical intervention for HIV prevention is available to eligible clients who are HIV negative and are at risk of getting HIV from sex or injection drug use. PrEP is a daily pill that when taken as prescribed, is highly effective for preventing HIV.
