General Information

DC Health now offers the Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Drug Assistance Program (DAP), for insured & uninsured HIV negative residents in the DC metropolitan area who are at high risk of HIV infection and are prescribed Truvada as PrEP. Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis therapy is a biomedical treatment that can reduce the spread of HIV in high risk populations by taking a pill daily to reduce the risk of HIV-1 infection among adult men and women. Truvada was approved in 2012 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for HIV prevention.
