Primary.Health PrEP care

Use our PrEP solution – pre-screening, e-prescribing, and virtual consults –  as an easy, discreet way to keep your community safe and healthy.

Approximately 1.2 million people in the United States have HIV, according to In 2021, an estimated 32,100 new HIV infections occurred in the nation. 

Without an available vaccine for HIV, PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a highly effective way to prevent HIV in people who are HIV-negative. Unfortunately, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that of the 1.2 million who could benefit from PREP, only 30 percent were prescribed PrEP in 2021.

Primary.Health empowers communities to take charge of their sexual health with simple, affordable PrEP pre-screening, e-prescribing, and telehealth for follow-up care.

Each of our PrEP steps can occur wherever people reside, via any device. And administrators can easily manage their PrEP program and other diagnostics from our central software platform.

What is PrEP?

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is prescription medicine that reduces a person’s chances of getting HIV from sex or injection drug use. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV:

  • PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99 percent. 
  • Among people who inject drugs, it reduces the risk by at least 74 percent.

Before taking PrEP, the patient must test negative for HIV. Patients who take PrEP must see their physician about every three months.

How Primary PrEP care works

We created our three-step PreP solution with your community’s needs and goals in mind:

  1. PrEP pre-screening: Screen your people for HIV using your preferred testing method(s). Choose from CLIA-waived testing under our CLIA waiver, or at-home over-the-counter (OTC)  testing. Whichever method you choose, test results will be sent digitally to both patient and provider. We can help you procure HIV tests, too.
  1. E-prescribing: For pre-screened HIV-negative people, Primary.Health clinicians can e-prescribe the appropriate FDA-approved PrEP medication.
  1. Telehealth: People prescribed PrEP can check in virtually with Primary.Health clinicians at the recommended intervals.
