Post Exposure Prophylaxis PEP
It is believed taking PEP can prevent HIV, however the evidence is not conclusive. Taking PEP does not guarantee that you won’t become HIV positive. It is offered as a last resort. Safe sex and safe injecting are still the best way to avoid HIV.
You can be assessed for PEP at sexual health clinics, doctors (including some general practitioners) who specialise in HIV/AIDS, and hospital accident and emergency departments (which are open 24 hours). If possible, seek assistance from a doctor who specialises in HIV or sexual health clinic first.
If you would like further information about PEP or have other questions you would like answered you can call 1800 PEP NOW (1800 737 669). The service operates 24 hours.
