MODULE 4: HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis Starter Kits

what is hiv post exposure prophylaxis
What is HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis?
  • Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is an emergency medical response given to prevent transmission of blood-borne pathogens following a potential exposure.
  • HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (HIV PEP) is a set of services that are provided to prevent HIV infection following potential exposure.
  • Services include first aid, counselling, HIV exposure risk assessment, HIV testing (with informed consent), a course of anti-HIV medication, with appropriate support and follow up.

What is HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis?
  • Should be initiated as soon as possible after exposure, ideally within 2 hours or less, and no later than 72 hours post- exposure.
  • Adherence to a full 28-day course of anti-retroviral (ARV) medicines is critical to successful treatment.
why the un provides hiv pep starter kits
Why the UN Provides HIV PEP Starter Kits.
  • In an ideal world, HIV PEP treatment would be available from any emergency medical service anywhere in the world .
  • This is true already in many places, but not yet in all.
  • Therefore, the UN provides HIV PEP to field offices
    • To be a responsible employer;
    • And because personnel can be at risk while working for the UN, especially in locations where HIV PEP is not available from local medical services.
