PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a daily pill that greatly reduces the risk of HIV infection.
If you are HIV-negative and may be exposed to HIV, ask your doctor or nurse if PrEP may be right for you.
PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) is an emergency medication that can stop HIV infection if started within 36 hours of exposure.
If you are HIV-negative and may have been exposed to HIV, go immediately to a clinic, emergency room or NYC Sexual Health Clinic and ask for emergency PEP to prevent HIV, or call the NYC PEP Hotline at (844) 3-PEPNYC (844-373-7692). The Hotline is available 24/7 and can help you get started on PEP right away.
PrEP and PEP are available throughout New York City. For a list of experienced clinics and options for the uninsured, visit Where to get PrEP and PEP.
