Increase Access to Life-Saving HIV Prevention Medication

Nearly 275 people are diagnosed with HIV in Oregon each year. Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a medication that can prevent HIV infection when taken daily. When taken correctly, PrEP is 92% to 99% effective in reducing the risk of getting HIV. Post-exposure prophylaxis, or PEP, is a medication used after a recent exposure to HIV.

Unfortunately, access to PrEP and PEP is limited. Behind-the-counter access to PrEP and PEP will align Oregon with national standards of care, ensure timely access to care, and close a loophole in current law that can stick patients with the full cost of a consultation with a pharmacist for these medications.

Forward Together Action will work with partners to pass behind-the-counter access to HIV prevention medication.
