PEP

AN EMPOWERED TOOL IN PREVENTING HIV  

Get the pill that can prevent HIV within 72 hours after potential exposure!

PREVENT HIV WITH PEP!

You may benefit from PEP if you're HIV negative or don’t know your HIV status, and in the last 72 hours you:

  • Think you may have been exposed to HIV during sex (for example: you didn't use protection)

  • Shared a needle with someone else when using drugs

  • Were sexually assaulted

Since PEP is only effective if taken within 72 hours of potential exposure to HIV, it’s important to be seen by a medical provider as soon as possible. On days in which our clinics are closed, please contact the nearest emergency room.

WHAT IS PEP?

Post-exposure prophylaxis (or PEP), is a short course of HIV medication taken very soon after possible exposure to HIV to prevent the virus. PEP is only effective at preventing HIV if started within 72 hours of being exposed to the virus, so it's very important to act fast.

PEP should only be used in emergency situations. It is not meant for regular use by people who may be exposed to HIV frequently. Learn more about PEP.
