Adherence is critical to providing protection against HIV

by | Mar 5, 2021

Adherence means taking the PrEP pill every day.

Suggest methods to remind the client to take the pill every day.

For example:

  • Take the pill at the same time every day
  • Incorporate it into your daily activities, like part of your morning routine or when a favourite TV show comes on
  • Set a phone alarm
  • Use daily pillboxes

Daily PrEP can be taken with alcohol, drugs or contraception. It does not react negatively with any normal day to day activity.

Discuss what to do if a pill is missed – take it as soon as client remembers.
