Exposure to HIV

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