What's the difference
between PrEP and Pep?
And why's it so important?
PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is for people who are at ongoing high risk of HIV infection.
PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) is an option for someone who thinks they've recently been exposed to HIV.
Both PrEP and PEP are once-daily pills that reduce the risk of getting HIV from sex—PrEP by more than 90% and PEP when taken in time.
