PrEP and PEP Services

CARE is recognized by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors as a Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Center of Excellence.

PrEP is a once-daily pill that can prevent you from contracting HIV. PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) can prevent HIV infection if you’ve had a recent exposure to HIV and are not currently on PrEP. PEP is an emergency medicine that must be taken within 3 days of HIV exposure.
