Clinical Guidelines on Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

On May 14, 2014, the US Public Health Service released the first comprehensive clinical practice guidelines for PrEP (PDF, 868 KB). The guidelines recommend a daily HIV preventive medication for persons at substantial risk of HIV infection, as identified in the guidelines. When taken daily as directed, PrEP can reduce the risk of HIV infection by more than 90 percent.

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, at http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/prevention/research/prep/index.html.

Guide for Wisconsin PrEP Providers

This newly developed clinical guide (PDF, 297 KB) summarizes the recommended practices for HIV prevention through Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) using the drug combination of tenofovir and emtricitabine (Truvada®). The guide has been compiled and reviewed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services - AIDS/HIV Program, in collaboration with experienced local HIV clinicians and other health care providers.
