News and Events

in+care Campaign

The Health Resources and Services Administration HIV/AIDS Bureau and the National Quality Center (NQC) have teamed up on this national retention campaign to improve our efforts to help people living with HIV/AIDS stay in care or get into care. The campaign focuses on the simple idea that when patients stay in care they get the services that they need, leading to healthier people and stronger communities. For more information, visit in+care Campaign.

PrEP: A New Tool for HIV Prevention

Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a new HIV prevention method in which people who do not have HIV infection take a pill daily to reduce their risk of becoming infected. The pill contains medicines that prevent HIV from making new virus as it enters the body. In this way PrEP medicines can help keep the virus from establishing a permanent infection. Learn more about this new tool from the CDC's PrEP Fact Sheet.

nPEP: Nonoccupational Post Exposure Prophylaxis

The most effective means of preventing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is preventing exposure. The provision of antiretroviral drugs to prevent HIV infection after unanticipated sexual or injection-drug--use exposure might be beneficial. Read the recommendations of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Working Group on Nonoccupational Postexposure Prophylaxis (nPEP) in the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
