Preventing HIV with PrEP

It's only a pill, but its impact could be a life-changing: PrEP is a daily medication that significantly reduces the risk of contracting HIV from a positive sexual partner. The FDA approved PrEP in July 2012. Legacy began its PrEP program a year later to spread the word about this revolutionary new way to prevent HIV and AIDS.

Legacy Kicks Off END HIV/AIDS Houston Project
The number of new annual HIV infections in Houston has remained relatively steady over the past five years. Legacy believes that 1200-1300 new diagnoses each year is far too many and has launched an ambitious effort to cut that number in half by 2021, thanks to a new grant from AIDS United and its Southern REACH initiative The END (Ending New Diagnoses) HIV/AIDS Houston Project will provide a plan for the City of Houston that will outline specific actions to be taken, identify funding resources, and set a road map for how the city can reduce new HIV diagnoses.
