Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) started as soon as possible after a known or possible HIV exposure has been an HIV prevention recommendation with CDC treatment guidelines since 1996 for occupational exposures of healthcare providers and since 2005 for non-occupational (sexual and injection) exposures. The guidelines have been updated since then and simplified as much as possible. This toolkit provides step-by-step instructions and references for the medical care of persons seen by a healthcare provider following possible sexual HIV exposure. All materials are available for immediate download. The pocket guide is currently in production and free hard copies will be available soon.
This toolkit is a collaborative product of the AETC Program Rural Health Committee, the AETC National Clinician Consultation Center, the Georgia Department of Public Health, the International Association of Forensic Nurses, and the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership.
