If a client is HIV negative, they will be given an initial month’s supply of Pr EP. HIV-negative people who take Pr EP every day can lower their risk of HIV infection by more than 90%. No, Pr EP must be taken on an ongoing daily basis to be effective. Yes, you can stop using Pr EP at any time, but you will then no longer be protected. Some people may get mild side effects (such as nausea, headache, tiredness, diarrhoea, depression, abnormal dreams, vomiting, rash, problems sleeping and changes in appetite.) These side effects, when they happen, usually go away after a few weeks. Pr EP is very effective in preventing HIV infection but using it together with condoms and water based lubrication is recommended. • If you are in the Pretoria / Tshwane area, call the TEN81 Centre on 0 or visit
