What is PrEP?
Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (or PrEP) is medication taken to prevent getting HIV. PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV when taken as prescribed, up to 99% from sexual activity or 74% from possible exposure as a result of injection drug use.
MAO provides PrEP options for your convenience:
- in person at multiple locations
- by telemedicine
- Labs done in-person or with Home-based PrEP lab kits mailed to you.

PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV.
