Hey Niagara! Quest Community Health Centre is excited to announce the launch of our new PrEP program.

So what is PrEP?

PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis and consists of a once daily pill in order to prevent HIV infection.

When taken consistently by an HIV negative person, PrEP can reduce the risk of HIV from unprotected sex by up to 99% and can reduce the risk from injection drug use by up to 75%

But is PrEP right for you?

Head over to our prep page to find out more information and fill out the online self-assessment tool to discover if PrEP may be an appropriate option for you.

Quest acknowledges that this medication plays an essential role in stopping the spread of HIV and protecting those most at risk and we are excited to be able to offer this service!

If you are living in the Niagara Region, you can now call Quest 905-688-2558 extension “0” to arrange an intake appointment with a Health Care Provider to discuss if PrEP is right for you.
