This document contains the 2014 U.S. Public Health Service Clinical Practice Guideline for Preexposure Prophylaxis for the Prevention of HIV Infection. The guideline is the first federal resource that provides comprehensive evidence-based information about the provision of daily oral antiretroviral preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP), including how to identify patients with indications for PrEP, guidance for safe prescribing practices, monitoring clinical safety for patients taking PrEP medications, and supporting medication adherence and the reduction of HIV risk behaviors. The guideline is intended for use by clinicians in the United States providing medical care for persons without HIV infection who are at substantial risk of acquiring it by their sexual or injection drug use behaviors. For these patients, the U.S. Public Health Service recommends offering PrEP as a prevention option.
