"It has great health information"
“I visit the B-Wise website a few times a month because it has great health information. Through B-Wise, I have learnt so much about PrEP, illnesses like HIV and other STIs and what to do if diagnosed with them. I’ve also learnt what steps to take to get the help I need if I have a health problem. I follow B-Wise on social media which is where I actually learnt about B-Wise in 2020.” — Pinky, 21
"I asked for the nearest clinic that offers PrEP and I got it"
"I got enlightened by B-Wise that one can have an HIV-positive partner and be negative. I then decided to start using PrEP as a form of protection. Even though I'm using PrEP and my partner’s viral load is undetectable, we still use condoms to prevent pregnancy and STIs. Through the B-Wise page, I learn about the MyPrep Facebook page and asked them for the nearest clinic that offers PrEP and I got it. — Cassie, 20
"The best info I have gotten so far is about double protection"
“I came across B-Wise for the first time in 2020 on social media and the information is something I have found very useful. I now visit the B-Wise website around once a week.
