HIV Prevention with Primary Care

Our primary care providers offer pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a pill you take one time a day to prevent HIV if you are HIV-negative and are at risk for getting HIV. PrEP is free in the state of Illinois, and our team can help you get the medication, if it is right for you.

We also can provide post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to help prevent HIV infection after a possible exposure. If you think you may have been exposed, call us right away at 1-888-824-0200. To work, PEP must be started within 72 hours of exposure.
