Condom Broke Or Exposed To HIV?

PEP or Post-Exposure Prophylaxis, is a combination of anti-HIV medication that can prevent you from becoming HIV positive if you think you were exposed to the the virus.

It must be started within:

  • 72 hours.
  • It can reduce your chances of becoming HIV+ by up to 80%
  • Must be taken for 28 days.

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis

PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, it is the use of anti-HIV medications to keep HIV negative people from becoming infected.

PrEP has been shown to be safe and effective at preventing HIV infection when taken correctly. You MUST consult a doctor before starting PrEP.

It is NOT:

  • A magic pill that prevents you from other sexually transmitted infections.
  • A morning after pill, and requires you to follow a strict timetable.


If you, your sex partner or your friend often finds himself in a situation where he forgets to use a condom, don’t have a condom on him all the time, prefers to not use a condom or wants additional protection on top of condom use, why not talk to him about PrEP?

Let him know how simple and effective PrEP is, and encourage him to speak to a Pink Carpet volunteer or make an appointment with the doctor.

Treatment as Prevention

Evidence has now shown that individuals on effective antiretroviral treatment (ART) with an undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV to others.

  • WHO guidelines now call for ‘test and treat’ strategies – initiating all people diagnosed with HIV on ART as soon as possible after diagnosis – as a way to decrease community viral load and reduce the rate of new HIV infections.
  • Treatment as prevention (TasP) will only be effective alongside the scale up of testing programmes and ART adherence support.


Treatment as prevention (TasP) refers to HIV prevention methods and programmes that use antiretroviral treatment (ART) to decrease the risk of HIV transmission.

The effectiveness of ART as a prevention tool is now undisputed – and it is now being used as a public health intervention, as well as a patient-specific strategy.

If you think you might be living with HIV, come and speak to us or your doctors on how best to start treatment as soon as you can. You. With modern medication, you can live a full life today.
