Frequently Asked Questions for Providers
Where can I resolve questions about providing PrEP?
The Clinician Consultation Center at UCSF provides clinicians of all experience levels prompt, expert responses to questions about managing HIV/AIDS, perinatal HIV, pre-exposure prophylaxis, and bloodborne pathogen exposures.
Is Truvada or Descovy the best option for PrEP?
Both Truvada (TDF/FTC) and Descovy (TAF/FTC) are safe and appropriate options for PrEP, although the former has robust evidence in multiple populations beyond cisgender men who have sex with men and transgender women. TAF/FTC has not been shown to be more effective than TDF/FTC. Study findings show that TAF/FTC is “noninferior” to TDF/FTC in preventing HIV—meaning that TAF/FTC is not better but, rather, similarly as effective as TDF/FTC.
How can Granite State PrEP Connect support my PrEP practice?
Our navigator or network of PrEP advocates can work with you and your patients to address issues from adherence to accessing assistance programs.
