Landmark legislation to boost awareness of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to prevent HIV infection was sent to California Gov. Jerry Brown on August 24 having received strong support in both the Senate and the Assembly. It’s the first statewide legislation of its kind.
Co-sponsored by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and APLA Health and introduced by Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson (D-Carson), AB 2640 will ensure high-risk HIV-negative individuals receive information about methods that reduce the risk of
contracting HIV, including PrEP and PEP, during HIV post-test counseling.
Help pass this landmark legislation by signing our petition urging Governor Brown to sign the bill now.
