Protect Yourself from HIV everyday -- PrEP 

PrEP is a daily pill that can protect HIV-negative people if taken every day.

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a prevention option for people who are at high risk of getting HIV. It’s meant to be taken routinely every day, and to be used with other prevention options, such as condoms. Find out if PrEP is right for you.

Prevent HIV after exposure – PEP

PEP is an emergency medicine that can stop HIV infection if taken right after being exposed.

PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) is the use of antiretroviral drugs to stop HIV from making copies of itself and spreading through your body. 

PEP must be started as soon as possible to be effective—and always within 3 days of a possible exposure. If you think you may have been exposed to HIV very recently, see a doctor as soon as possible to find out if PEP is right for you.
