PrEP Prescribers in Greater Cleveland 

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) has shown to be an effective HIV prevention strategy for people who are at risk for HIV infection. In 2012, the US FDA approved the first anti-HIV medicine for PrEP, Truvada, which may be prescribed as PrEP by any doctor, nurse or physician assistant. If you do not have a primary physician or would prefer not to discuss PrEP with him or her, the following healthcare providers accept patients to receive PrEP.

Your choice of providers may be restricted based on your insurance/non-insurance coverage. For those without insurance, the maker of Truvada, Gilead Sciences, has a patient assistance program to help in obtaining the medicine.

Please contact the local PrEP providers below with questions you may have (click blue hotlinks for websites).
