This 5-page PrEP Quick Clinical Guide was born out of a collaboration between Bay Area clinicians who wanted a clear, brief guide to prescribing and safely supporting someone taking PrEP, the medication that prevents HIV acquisition for people who are HIV-negative. It has been reviewed by PrEP experts throughout California.
