Emergency treatment

HIV Post Exposure Prophylaxis

If you're HIV negative but have had sexual contact with someone with HIV then you can reduce the risk of catching the virus by taking a course of antiviral drugs.

This treatment needs to be taken as soon as possible after sex and definitely within 72 hours.
