  • Ready, Set, PrEP

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Ready, Set, PrEP program makes PrEP medications available to people who qualify at no cost. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is a way to prevent people who do not have HIV from getting HIV, by taking one pill every day as prescribed.

    The initiative's goal is to reduce the number of new HIV infections in the U.S. by 75% in 5 years and 90% by 2030.

  • OH and KY Winning Against the Hepatitis A Outbreak

    Butler County has the second-highest number of cases, 408, among Ohio’s 88 counties.

    Jenny Bailer, Butler County’s health director, recognized the rising numbers early and stepped prevention efforts. The last case she attributes to the outbreak turned up in August, but she is waiting until the state of Ohio has decided the outbreak has ended to declare victory.

  • Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)

    PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that are used to make household products stain-resistant, waterproof, and nonstick. 

    One study of 70,000 Ohio and West Virginia residents exposed to PFOA through their drinking water found “probable links” between PFOA and several diseases. This means that drinking PFOA probably raises the chance of getting those diseases, but it is still not certain.
