The Partners in Prevention (PIP) clinic at JACQUES Initiative offers pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to prevent HIV infection in people at risk. PrEP is a medication taken daily before you are exposed to HIV, and PEP is medication taken urgently (within 72 hours) after an exposure.
Learn more about PrEP and PEP at PrEPmaryland.org.
If you think you have been exposed to HIV in the last 72 hours, please visit the University of Maryland Emergency Department as soon as possible to be evaluated for PEP. PEP is only started in the Emergency Department. A provider will take over your care on the next business day after you leave the Emergency Department.
If you are interested in learning more about protecting yourself from HIV, call 443-386-1746 to speak to a Prevention Specialist.
