PEP prevents HIV acquistion if there has been an accidental exposure such as a condom breakage.

PEP is a month-long course of anti-HIV drugs that can keep HIV from taking hold in your body. This can be accessed at the emergency department of all public hospitals and sexual health clinics.

If you have been exposed to HIV, the sooner you start PEP the better. It must be started within 72 hours after your possible exposure to HIV.

Where can I get PEP?

You can get PEP from any sexual health clinic, The Albion Centre, or the Emergency Department of most public hospitals.
