Testing Positive In PrEP Pre-screening

If you discover that a person is HIV positive during the screening process of starting PrEP, the most important thing is do not start PrEP. PrEP is not appropriate for this person, this person needs to be on HIV treatment which involves three agents that are active against HIV. Truvada or PrEP only has two agents and it’s important that we offer full, effective, potent treatment for HIV in people who have recently been diagnosed with infection.
