Exposure to HIV

Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is a month-long course of anti-HIV medication that can prevent HIV from taking hold in your body if started within 72 hours of exposure. If you think you’ve been exposed to HIV, PEP may prevent HIV from replicating in your body – if you act quickly. Generally, you can get PEP at a sexual health clinic or in the accident and emergency sections of most hospitals.
