PEP

PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis)

Is an important prevention and harm reduction tool in the fight to stop the HIV epidemic.  This medication can prevent someone from getting HIV, even after a direct exposure to the virus. 

We only have 72 HOURS from the time of exposure to get you this medication!

Our on-call starts Fridays at 4:30 p.m. and is available until Monday morning at 8:30 a.m.

If you have had a direct exposure to HIV, call one of our outreach specialists and they can assist you in accessing PEP medication.

PEP Medication is more effective the closer it is administered to the time of the exposure.

It is important to take the entire prescription, as prescribed for efficacy.

Types of Exposure to HIV

Did you know HIV can live in a syringe for 42 days? 

It can. 

Here is a list of exposures:

  • Accidental needle stick

  • Condom Breaks

  • Sexual Assault by someone of an unknown status

  • Unprotected sex with an HIV+ person with a detectable viral load

*** People who are HIV+ and have an undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV.  If you have engaged in sex with someone you know is HIV+, you can ask them if they are undetectable or if they have a detectable viral load.  If they do not, they cannot transmit it to you!
