HIV Prevention: Pep and Prep

HIV Ribbon

What is PEP and PrEP?

  • PEP stands for "post-exposure prophylaxis." It means taking pills within 72 hours of being potentially exposed to prevent HIV from spreading in your body.
  • PrEP stands for "pre-exposure prophylaxis." It is a way for people who do not have HIV but who are at substantial risk of getting it to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. PrEP can reduce your risk of getting HIV by almost 99%.

HIV prevention is available. It's confidential. It's quick. And now, it’s yours for the asking at four NewYork-Presbyterian locations. Call 917-580-1682 to learn more or visit one of the locations below.

You CAN prevent HIV, and you deserve protection. Get PEP or PrEP now.
