TelePrEP/HIV Prevention Program
Now offering TelePrEP services
How does TelePrEP work?
Call our dedicated PrEP Coordinator, Amanda Ahumada, at 303.724.8245 for more information and help making an appointment.
Before your TelePrEP appointment, complete your lab work at home through a kit you can mail in or at your local lab if preferred.
Next, complete your TelePrEP visit with a medical provider. Once you have your prescription, you can pick up PrEP medication at your local pharmacy or have it mailed to you.
A daily pill can help prevent HIV.
Now you can access PrEP from anywhere in Colorado with TelePrEP. TelePrEP is a flexible solution to manage your daily PrEP needs. While we also offer in-person appointments and follow-up care in our PrEP clinic, TelePrEP offers an alternative to in-person visits with all our comprehensive PrEP clinical services available from the comfort and privacy of your home.
We have a dedicated PrEP Coordinator trained for your needs. Our clinic and providers also work side-by-side with experts in pharmacy, mental health and more to address each of your individual health care concerns.
We are also the only program in Colorado offering PrEP entirely through virtual services using secure video chat and at-home labs. You can do your labs using our free at-home lab test kit from the comfort and privacy of your home as well as your clinic appointments and follow-up care. You can receive your medication by mail or at the local pharmacy of your choice.
More information and getting started
What is PrEP?
PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. PrEP is a daily medicine that you can take that helps you to stay HIV-negative. It is safe and the side effects are minimal and usually go away quickly.
What is TelePrEP?
TelePrEP is an easy, convenient way to access PrEP from anywhere in Colorado. TelePrEP allows you to virtually connect to a medical provider using a secure app. You can use your personal electronic devices (smartphone, tablet, or computer) to have provider visits without leaving your home or community. You can see, hear, and speak to a provider to discuss your PrEP medical care by phone and/or video chat.
Who is eligible?
Any HIV-negative adult 18 years of age or older who has access to email and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with an internet connection.
What are the benefits?
A TelePrEP appointment eliminates the time and travel needed to see a provider. TelePrEP allows you to have confidential and exclusive access to PrEP medical care and services without having to leave your community. You can have a medical appointment from anywhere in Colorado.
