HIV PrePHIV/PrEP:

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) weakens the immune system and makes it difficult for the body to fight off diseases and infections. There is no effective cure and if left untreated, HIV can cause AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). With appropriate medical care, HIV can be controlled.

HIV is transmitted most commonly, through sexual behaviors and by needle or syringe use. Only certain body fluids—blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and breast milk—from a person who has HIV can transmit HIV. These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the bloodstream (from a needle or syringe) for transmission to occur. Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, vagina, penis, and mouth.

Southwest District Health offers medications that can help prevent you from getting HIV if you are exposed to the virus by taking one pill every day. This medication is referred to as PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis). Our goal is to provide our clients with the necessary information and education to make informed personal choices.

Contact Southwest District Health at 208.455.5345 to make an appointment to discuss:
  • Education & Information about PrEP
  • Is PrEP right for you?
  • Navigating insurance and medication assistance programs to attain PrEP for free or at a low-cost
  • Tips for talking with your partners about PrEP, STD-prevention, condoms, and MORE
