HIV PrEP is a medicine that stops you getting HIV.

Black African women and men

PrEP is for everyone who may be at risk of HIV. This includes women and men from black African communities living in Scotland.

Is HIV PrEP for me?

You should always feel in control of the sex you have and the method you choose to look after your sexual health. You should never feel pressured into not using condoms if that’s your preference.

PrEP can be used with all forms of contraception. PrEP does not affect your ability to get pregnant. PrEP can be safely used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
