Mango Health is committed to improving access to PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), a daily medication that reduces the risk of HIV infection for individuals without HIV. Our team at Mango Health has extensive expertise and specialized training in PrEP management. We provide a convenient service whereby your PrEP prescription can be delivered directly to your preferred address, discreetly packaged and at no charge. Moreover, we offer assistance in obtaining refills and securing financial support.
PrEP is a highly effective tool in the battle against HIV, boasting the ability to reduce the risk of infection by up to 99% when taken consistently. Its effectiveness is further enhanced when used in conjunction with other preventive measures, such as condom usage. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted approval for two PrEP medications: Truvada® and Descovy®.
You may be a candidate for PrEP if you have:
Injected drugs and:
- Have an injection partner with HIV
- Share needles, syringes, or other equipment to inject drugs (such as cookers)
Consult with your doctor to determine if PrEP is suitable for you. Most insurance plans cover the cost of PrEP, which means you may not have to pay anything out-of-pocket. Mango Health is a participant in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services program called Ready, Set, PrEP that offers free access to medication for eligible individuals.
Mango Health is committed to enhancing access to PrEP, particularly for populations that are more vulnerable to HIV but often do not receive adequate support, such as young people, Black men who have sex with men (MSM), and Black women. Despite the disproportionate impact of HIV on people of color, only 10% of those taking PrEP are Black individuals.
