Post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) 

HIV PEP is available and free for people who feel that they have been at high risk of exposure to HIV for example unprotected anal sex between men when their HIV status is not known.

PEP is a course of anti HIV medication taken twice a day for 28 days in order to prevent the HIV virus entering the body’s blood cells. If you are not sure whether you need PEP please speak to one of our team so we can assess the risk and advise you further.

PEP is available from our Sexual Health clinics in Crawley, Chichester and Worthing during opening hours. Outside of these hours you should attend your local A&E department.
