What is TRUVADA for PrEP?TRUVADA contains the prescription medicines emtricitabine (EMTRIVA) and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (VIREAD). TRUVADA is used with safer sex practices at all times, to reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 in men who have sex with men who are at high risk of getting infected with HIV-1 through sex, and heterosexual couples where one partner has HIV-1 and the other does not. This is called Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis or PrEP. TRUVADA does not cure HIV infection or AIDS.
