You have choices to prevent an HIV transmission. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is one choice. It is a prescription drug taken daily (currently Truvada or Descovy), and it can provide significant protection against HIV.
Are you vulnerable to HIV, interested in taking PrEP or need HIV testing? The AIDS Foundation of Chicago and Center on Halsted can help with emergency financial assistance (rent, utility payments) for people who are living with HIV and who are HIV-negative and taking PrEP. We can connect people vulnerable to HIV to PrEP, HIV testing, medical care and more. Call the HIV Resource Hub at 1-844-HUB-4040. Services are available in Chicago, Cook County and the Collar Counties (Chicago Metropolitan Area). Learn more about the Hub and services available here.
