In FY23, PPP gave 516 prescriptions for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) to prevent HIV, a 382% increase in one year.

Prevention Point Philadelphia (PPP) was founded in 1992 as an emergency response to the HIV/AIDS crisis in Philadelphia. Since then, treatment has come a long way, and so have PPP's care options for patients. With over 18,000 people diagnosed with HIV in the City of Philadelphia, we are committed to reducing stigma, reducing HIV transmission rates, and giving people the care they need.

PPP currently offers preventative services and navigation to care as well as primary care for people living with HIV. 


PPP's HIV prevention services began with our flagship Syringe Services Program (SSP) and now also include the PrEP Clinic and Testing Tervices. 

Highlights of our prevention data from FY23 include:

  • 516 prescriptions for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) to prevent HIV (382% increase in one year)
  • 0 participants started PrEP and became HIV+
  • 7,905,470 syringes distributed to 30,247 individuals
  • 1,775 HIV tests (33% increase in one year)

Primary Care

Through PPP's Sana Clinic, we offer a full spectrum of medical care for patients living with HIV. Sana Clinic is a “one-stop shop” integrating HIV care, primary care, and medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) into one location.  

In FY23, Sana Clinic had 394 visits from patients living with HIV for ongoing medical care.
