PrEP@Home is a randomized clinical trial of a home care system for using Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) to help protect against HIV infections. Individuals entering into PrEP care at an initial in-person study visit will be randomized to the PrEP@Home system for home-based PrEP care follow-up visits or to standard of care for clinic-based follow-up visits. The primary aim of this study is to assess protective levels of PrEP medication for a home-based care compared to the standard of care.
