Preventing HIV -- after exposure
Posted by: Anthony Trocchia

Too many people are unaware of PEP—post-exposure prophylaxis—and its potential to prevent HIV. If started within 72 hours of exposure (and the sooner the better), a 28-day course of HIV medications might halt HIV infection.

The web site PEP411.com raises PEP's profile. It explains whether PEP might be appropriate in a given circumstance, and it helps New Yorkers get PEP ASAP.

Not a New Yorker? The site's information can help you know what to say when you go to a local doctor or emergency room seeking PEP.

Providers can get PEP training by visiting ceitraining.org, or call the hotline for docs: 888-448-4911.

What's an ADRC?

ADRC stands for Aging and Disability Resource Center. Each national region is supposed to have one. They're all funded by the federal government, and they're the newest twist on the old one-stop-shop idea. If you need any type of personal assistance service, you ought to be connected to whatever is in your area by contacting an ADRC first. From there, being plugged into whatever you're eligible for ought to be seanless and easy. No more being sent on wild goose chases, theoretically. Find the one closest to you at www.adrc-tae.org.
