What are PrEP and PEP?
PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a daily pill that can prevent HIV infection. If you take PrEP every day, it greatly reduces your risk of HIV.

PrEP can protect you if you’re at risk of exposure to HIV through sex or injecting drugs. and are ready to take a daily pill.
If you are HIV-negative and worry about HIV infection, ask your doctor if PrEP may be right for you.
More information about PrEP.

PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) is an emergency medication that you begin taking right after you are exposed to HIV. You continue taking PEP for 28 days.
PEP can protect you after you have anal or vaginal sex without a condom with someone who has, or might have, HIV, or if you were exposed to HIV while injecting drugs.
If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, go immediately to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP.
