PREP IT UP
STEP IT UP
PEP, or post-exposure prophylaxis, is a short course of HIV medicines taken very soon after a possible exposure to HIV to prevent the virus from taking hold in your body.
You must start it within 72 hours (3 days) after a possible exposure to HIV, or it won’t work. Every hour counts!
PEP should be used only in emergency situations. It is not meant for regular use by people who may be exposed to HIV frequently.
