Ready, Set, PrEP is a new nationwide program led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The Ready, Set, PrEP program provides pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) medications at no cost to thousands of individuals who qualify. The program will expand access to PrEP medications, reduce new HIV infections, and bring us one step closer to ending the HIV epidemic in the United States.

The 2020 theme is "Resilience + Action: Ending the HIV Epidemic for Our Native Communities."
Prevention and treatment are critical to reducing HIV’s impact in Native communities. PrEP is when people at risk for HIV take daily medicine to prevent HIV.
HHS released an RFP in support of the Ready, Set, PrEP program in December to identify a vendor(s) that can administer a customized solution that delivers PrEP medications to eligible recipients under the donation agreement with Gilead. Learn more here.
