PrEP Can Prevent HIV
PrEP is a Daily Pill That is 99% Effective in Preventing HIV
3 Steps to Preventing HIV:
1. Get an at home HIV test kit delivered in unmarked packaging.
2. Connect with a local METRO doctor from your smartphone, tablet or computer
3. Get your prescription by mail or no-contact delivery.
PrEP is covered by most insurances and METRO also has assistance programs which can make PrEP available at little to no cost to you.
Regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, PrEP is for anyone that’s sexually active and could be exposed to HIV, including those in committed relationships.
Florida has one of the highest HIV infection rates in the country and the national Centers for Disease Control has identified Pinellas and Hillsborough counties as two of the most “burdened counties” when it comes to HIV infections.
With Truvada and now Descovy, you now have more options for PrEP. Talk to our PrEP Navigators for more info.
Use your normal copay to fill a PrEP or any prescription at a METRO partner pharmacy, and you’re making healthcare services available to more of the community at no extra cost to you. Learn more.
With its roots in serving the LGBTQ+ community, METRO is proud to provide inclusive community health services for over 25 years, no judgement and stigma free.
If you’re concerned about potential recent exposure to HIV, where prevention was absent or perhaps didn’t work as expected, contact us about nPEP.
