At the Checkpoint, we offer you PrEP start counselling sessions and the necessary routine checks.

PrEP is a protection option against HIV. PrEP stands for “pre-exposure prophylaxis”. This is a medication. The method has been scientifically tested and, when used correctly, protects against HIV infection just as well as condoms. However, PrEP only protects against HIV and not against other sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhoea, chlamydia, syphilis or hepatitis.

It is important that you only take PrEP under medical supervision to avoid developing resistance and side effects such as kidney damage, and that you are tested for STIs every three months.
