Expanding Access to PrEP to End the HIV Epidemic

PrEP is the most effective tool we have to prevent HIV transmission and bring an end to the HIV epidemic.

HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a simple, safe, and effective daily pill that reduces the risk of HIV transmission by close to 100%.

But despite the proven effectiveness of this game-changing medication, PrEP is significantly under-prescribed and can be inaccessible to many who need it. Stigma, discrimination, and systemic inequities resulting from homophobia, transphobia, and structural racism remain critical barriers.

We are committed to reducing stigma and barriers to healthcare, and ensuring PrEP access for all.
 

Current Advocacy

In Massachusetts, we are advocating for a bill that would allow pharmacists to provide a 60-day supply of PrEP for people facing barriers to care. The legislation would also improve access to care by requiring pharmacists to connect customers to medical providers for ongoing PrEP oversight and other vital health needs.
