Pre exposure HIV prophylaxis (PrEP) and TelePrEP

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a daily medication regimen which prevents human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections for those without HIV who are at risk of contracting the virus (offered at the Internal Medicine clinic at IRL).

TelePrEP uses secure video conferencing for in-home visits between patients in rural areas and University of Iowa Health Care providers. The medication is delivered via mail directly to a patient's home. This program expands HIV prevention across the state of Iowa. Email teleprep@healthcare.uiowa.edu​ or call 319-467-8777 for more information.
