HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) is anti-HIV treatment that must begin within 72 hours (3 days) after exposure to the virus. The goal is to prevent HIV from becoming established in the body.


Anyone suspecting they have been exposed to HIV should immediately call the San Francisco PEP Hotline at (415) 487-5538. The line is staffed 24 hours/day.


If you are interested in learning more about PEP, please find additional information in the links below.

PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is an HIV prevention method that involves HIV-negative people taking anti-HIV medications daily to help prevent HIV infection. The combination of emtricitabine and tenofovir in a single pill called Truvada has been used in the treatment of HIV-positive individuals for many years, but only in 2012 did the US FDA approve its use in "treatment as prevention" in HIV-negative individuals at high risk for HIV infection.

If you are interested in learning more about PrEP, please find additional information in the links below, or ask your healthcare provider about whether Truvada might be a good fit for you.
