PrEP 4 Youth

Oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a new HIV prevention method that offers more than 90 percent protection when taken correctly. The OPTIONS Consortium, in collaboration with the South African National Department of Health, created five short, powerful videos that encourage pre-exposure prophylaxis as an acceptable HIV prevention method for adolescent girls and young women.

The videos were crafted to position pre-exposure prophylaxis as more than just a pill, but as a source of aspiration, empowerment and independence. The videos feature talented actresses from the popular MTV Shuga: Down South series and answer critical questions about HIV testing, combination prevention, PrEP side effects, PrEP stigma and PrEP adherence.
