There is a treatment that may prevent HIV infection. It's called PEP (post exposure prophylaxis). But act fast, the sooner PEP is taken after exposure the more likely it is to work. Delaying may mean the treatment will not work. If the exposure was not recent you should still go to a clinic for a HIV test as early diagnosis is important.PEP reduces the risk of contracting HIV by about 80% after needle stick injuries. We do not know for certain how well it works after sexual exposure, but the information we have suggests it does reduce the risk, but is not 100% effective.

Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is short-term antiretroviral treatment to reduce the likelihood of HIV infection after potential exposure, either occupationally or through sexual intercourse. Within the health sector, PEP should be provided as part of a comprehensive universal precautions package that reduces staff exposure to infectious hazards at work.

PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV. If you think you’ve recently been exposed to HIV during sex or through sharing needles and works to prepare drugs or if you’ve been sexually assaulted, talk to your health care provider or an emergency room doctor about PEP right away.

WHAT IS PEP?

PEP stands for post-exposure prophylaxis. It means taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.For many people that are accidentally exposed to HIV, PEP provides a single opportunity to prevent HIV after exposure. Such accidental exposures may be among health care workers who had needle stick injuries or among adults and children who survived sexual violence.
