A pill a day can keep the HIV away!
Pre Exposure Prophylactics (PrEP) is a pill that a person can take to prevent getting HIV. It has been available in America and Europe for a few years now but just recently came to the Philippines.
In clinical trials it is 93% effective from stopping the HIV virus from taking hold inside the bodies cells. In order to reach maximum effectiveness the PrEP pill must be taken every single day. In addition there are possible side effects.
Most of the time those side effects are very minimal and only last a couple of weeks at most.
The Philippines is one of the world’s HIV hot spots. It is estimated that 2 Pinoys become infected with the HIV virus every day. A person taking PrEP shouldn’t refrain from using condoms, however, as it doesn’t prevent the spread of other sexually transmitted infections such as Chlamydia and Syphilis
