PrEP for Wellness

What is PrEP? What is PEP?

HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP): Use of antiretroviral medication in an HIV-negative person before HIV exposure to prevent HIV acquisition

  • Truvada is the only FDA-approved medication for HIV PrEP

HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP): Use of antiretroviral medication after an isolated HIV exposure or high-risk event in an attempt to stop HIV replication and establishment of infection

  • PEP must be started as soon as possible to be effective and always within 72 hours of the possible exposure
