HIV prevention PSA (tldr you can get PrEP for FREE) Show more
if your reason for not being on PrEP (the pre-exposure prophylactic medicine that almost entirely prevents HIV from taking root in your body) is that it's too expensive, you should be aware that you are entitled to receive it 100% FREE OF COST to you via Gilead's "Advancing Access" program. Not only that, it's so easy to sign up I literally did it in line at the pharmacy when they told me I'd have to pay $3k for my script pickup.
There is no reason for you to pay ANY MONEY for PrEP.
