CUTTING EDGE HIV PREVENTION THROUGH PREP!
PrEP is short for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. It is an HIV prevention strategy for people who are at very high risk for HIV infection. People using PrEP take an HIV medication every day to help prevent infection. PrEP should always be used as part of your overall HIV prevention strategy which should include safer sex practices, such as condoms.
PrEP is a recommended HIV prevention tool for you if:
Your primary sex partner is HIV-positive.
You use condoms sometimes, or not at all.
You have had a sexually transmitted infection in the last 12 months.
You have multiple sexual partners.
You are a man who has sex with other men (MSM).
Getting PrEP through the RMC PrEP Clinic is simple. Start by taking an HIV test – PrEP can only be used with people who are confirmed to not have HIV. After your test results are confirmed you will receive a health exam from your health care provider. Your provider will then give you a prescription for PrEP for you to get filled through the RM CARES Pharmacy, or a different pharmacy of your choosing.
People using PrEP need to visit their doctor every 3 months to continue PrEP treatment. RMC and RM CARES Pharmacy can help you access PrEP even if you have no insurance or have high co-pays.

“As a physician, I know that often times some of the biggest barriers HIV patients face to achieving health are related to unaddressed mental and behavioral health concerns, not having enough nutritious food, and not having a safe place to live,” said Dr. Ken Greenberg. Greenberg, who is currently in private practice with Denver Infectious Disease Consultants (DIDC), will join RMC as Medical Director.
