PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS EXPANDS HEALTH CARE SERVICES WITH PEP
DENVER, CO – Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) is expanding their services to make health care more accessible to patients than ever before. PPRM now offers post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) for individuals potentially exposed to HIV at all 24 PPRM health center locations in Colorado, New Mexico, and Southern Nevada.
“At Planned Parenthood, we’ve proudly offered HIV-testing and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to our patients for years. Now, we’re taking the meaningful step of expanding that care to patients who have potentially been exposed to HIV. Patients with a possible exposure to HIV within the last 72 hours can make an appointment at any PPRM health center or simply walk in,” said Adrienne Mansanares, Chief Experience Officer, PPRM. “In a world in which health care access is increasingly threatened, we’re proud to count this important expansion of care among the many innovations we continue to implement in the Rocky Mountains.”
PEP is comprised of two medications taken daily for 28 days. It is most effective the sooner the regimen is begun following an exposure.
