Comprehensive Clinical Guidelines on Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)
On May 14, 2014, the US Public Health Service released the first

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has published the
clinical guidelines and a variety of resource materials for
clinicians and consumers, including web-based facts sheets and
videos, on web at
