Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)


Immediate access available!

Antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.

PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV. If you think you’ve recently been exposed to HIV during sex or through sharing needles and works to prepare drugs or if you’ve been sexually assaulted, you may schedule an appointment with The Project or talk to your health care provider about PEP right away.

The Project provides SAME DAY & WALK-IN Appointments call 309-762-5433. PEP services are typically FREE or very low cost.
