Let’s stop HIV in New York City

  • If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
  • If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.

 

Daily PrEP

PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.

  • Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
  • Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.

 

Emergency PEP

If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure  Prophylaxis).

  • PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
  • You continue taking PEP for 28 days.

Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.

This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV

I honestly thought this might be exaggeration but the CDC says that PrEP is 92% effective. Damn. Damn.

reblogging because this deserves waaaay more attention D:

still the best reference disney ever made

Haha wow. What movie is this?!

Treasure Planet.

One of Disney’s more obscure films but so worth it.

Love this reference more every time I see it. :)

To my way of thinking, Treasure Planet is very underrated: it’s not at all bad as an adaptation, it’s overall a very beautiful film in the graphic-arts sense, and the voice cast (David Hyde Pierce, Emma Thompson, Brian Murray, Joseph Gordon-Levitt) cast do excellent work with their characters. If it didn’t do well, I think that’s secondary to Disney (a) suddenly getting cold feet because they weren’t sure how to market it, and then (b) shoving it out the door without almost any decent marketing at all.

(And if someone nearby can reduce me to hysterical gasping laughter with merely the line "Spaceport floozies! Spaceport floozies!", then that’s my fault and nobody else’s.)
