HIV PrEP

Through a collaborative effort with the Mecklenburg County Public Health Department, Charlotte Community Health Clinic will be offering PrEP for free to high-risk uninsured individuals. There will be a limited number of spots available for this pilot program. When spots become available, we will announce this on our website, Facebook, and Twitter. So, check our website often and make sure to follow us on social media.

What is PrEP?

  • PrEP, or Pre-exposure Prophylaxis, is a pill taken every day that can prevent HIV for individuals with significant risk.
  • When taken consistently PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by more than 90% and reduces the risk by more than 70% among individuals who inject drugs.
  • There are many risk factors that might make you a good candidate for PrEP.
