People at high risk of getting HIV can reduce their risk with medication regimens called PEP and PrEP. You can take PrEP before you are exposed. After you are exposed, PEP can help reduce your risk of getting HIV. To learn more, talk to one of our health care professionals in San Diego, Riverside, or Imperial counties.
If you are at high risk of getting HIV, you can take a medication regimen on an ongoing basis to reduce your risk of contracting the virus.
After you are exposed, you can take a medication regimen within 72 hours of exposure to reduce your risk of getting HIV.
Rapid HIV Test
Visit one of our health centers to get a rapid HIV test. We swab the inside of your cheek and you get the results of the test within 20 minutes.
How do I pay for it?
PrEP and PEP are covered by most insurance plans, including Medi-Cal, Medicare, and private employer plans.
If you do not have insurance, ask about medication assistance programs to receive PrEP or PEP at low- to no-cost for you.
