How do you start PrEP? To start PrEP, schedule an appointment with a knowledgeable healthcare provider for eligibility assessment, testing, prescription, and follow-up care.

What is PEP? PEP is a time-limited course of medication taken after potential exposure to HIV. It helps prevent HIV infection when started within 72 hours of exposure.
