PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) is an emergency HIV treatment for those who have had unsafe sex.
PEP is a short course of antiretroviral drugs that stops exposure to HIV from becoming a lifelong infection. You need to start a course within 72 hours of having unsafe sex for it to be effective.
PEP treatment can be obtained from Hospital Clinic Barcelona, Villarroel, 170 Barcelona (open 24 hours).
