PrEP is meant to provide extra protection against HIV/AIDS, but it's not for everyone, nor is it taken properly by all users.

Condoms are 98 percent effective, but some users stop wearing condoms while on PrEP. This places them at risk of contracting other STDS, and it's still possible to contract HIV. 

#UsePrEP

On World AIDS Day, many encouraged sexually active individuals to add a form of protection against HIV/AIDs with PrEP

#UseOtherPreventions

It's still possible to contract HIV while PrEP—especially without using condoms.

#UsePrEP

There have been only two reported cases of gay men still contracting HIV while on PrEP. Many users are wearing condoms, but feel extra safe knowing that PrEP will prevent HIV in case of exposure.
