Healthcare Coverage for PrEP

Let’s make this the last era of HIV with PrEP

PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a once-daily pill that is 99% effective at preventing HIV. Most Ohioans can get PrEP for free through a state program called PAPI.

Equitas Health PrEP Health Navigators can help you get connected to PAPI, find a PrEP provider, and start protecting yourself from HIV transmission.
