Adam Spivak of the HIV PrEP Clinic at the University of Utah, which offers free PrEP if you don't have insurance.
PrEP (also known as Truvada or Descovy) is a pill you take every day that helps you prevent getting HIV. You must also, however, also use other harm reduction and safe-sex practices. When the medication builds up inside your bloodstream, it can stop HIV from spreading inside your body. The key is that you must take the medication every day in order for it to work. Learn more about how PrEP works.
Last year a number of residents were forced to leave their homes on the bank of the Colorado River in Utah after a developer purchased the land. That included one man living in a cave.
