There is good news in the fight against HIV. According to Fox 28, a little blue pill could mean big changes in the lives of thousands of people in Central Ohio. Changes for the better.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a new HIV-prevention approach where HIV-negative people at high risk of coming into contact with the virus take a daily pill to reduce the risk of becoming infected. In this case, the pill is Truvada.

“What this means for people is that HIV is now a preventable disease,” said Mimi Rivard, a nurse practitioner for Aids Resource Center Ohio, or ARC Ohio.

“It’s actually the HIV-prevention medication.”

ARC Ohio advocates the use of condoms along with the medicine to prevent HIV infection.

Truvada is covered by many insurance plans.
