WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ROUTINE TESTS?
PrEP only provides protection against transmission of HIV but it does not provide protection to other Sexually Transmitted Infections.
Most of the STIs if diagnosed early, treatment and management are simple. Regular screening and testing will help the Clinician to provide a timely and appropriate treatment plan. Complications from these infections will be prevented.

WHERE TO GET PrEP?
PrEP is more than just a tablet you take once a day. An HIV-negative individual who wishes to use PrEP must first obtain a prescription from a doctor ready to offer the required medical follow-up in a safe and educated manner.
People who are on PrEP also get full sexual health treatments from their doctor or health care provider. To be on PrEP, you must visit your physician or health care provider on a regular basis, and both you and your or health care provider must feel comfortable discussing the types of sex you have and how it impacts your health.
WHEN TO START PrEP?
PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is an HIV prevention approach wherein people who don't have HIV take a daily antiretroviral pill to reduce their risk of getting HIV if they are exposed to the virus. PrEP is most effective when used as part of a comprehensive HIV prevention program that includes frequent HIV testing. PrEP helps to prevent HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body.
PrEP is helpful for key affected populations who are more susceptible to HIV infection for one cause or another. These are vulnerable populations because they participate in high-risk behaviors like injecting drugs or are socially marginalized and scared of receiving HIV treatment. In order to effectively respond to the HIV epidemic, HIV prevention programs must specifically target these populations with information and services tailored to their needs.
