Condoms are an important tool in preventing the spread of HIV. When used consistently and correctly, condoms are highly effective in preventing HIV. They are also effective at preventing sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) that are transmitted through bodily fluids, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is when people at high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected. A combination of two HIV medicines, sold under the name Truvada® (pronounced tru vá duh), is approved for daily use as PrEP to help prevent an HIV-negative person from getting HIV from a sexual or injection-drug-using partner who’s positive. Studies have shown that PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV if it is used as prescribed. PrEP is much less effective when it is not taken consistently.
