WHAT IS PrEP?
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) refers to medication taken people at very high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected. A combination of two HIV medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine), 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.

Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) refers to taking antiretroviral medicines after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.

WHAT IS LATENT TUBERCULOSIS?
 
Persons with latent TB infection have been exposed to the Mycobacterium Tuberculosis at some point in their life. Persons do not feel sick and do not have any symptoms. They are infected with M. tuberculosis, but do not have TB disease. The only sign of TB infection is a positive reaction to the tuberculin skin test or TB blood test. Persons with latent TB infection are not infectious and cannot spread TB infection to others.
Those suspected or TB exposure, identified with PPD reactor, schedule with PCM for Chest X-Ray and Tuberculin Blood test.  Those with recent travel OCONUS or born in endemic areas request appointment with Provider for appropriate LTBI action.
