Updated Guidelines for Antiretroviral Postexposure Prophylaxis After Sexual, Injection Drug Use, or Other Nonoccupational Exposure to HIV

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide health care providers in the United States with updated guidelines to the 2005 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nonoccupational postexposure prophylaxis (nPEP) recommendations1 on the use of antiretroviral nPEP and other aspects of case management for persons with isolated exposure outside health care settings to blood, genital secretions, or other potentially infectious body fluids that might contain human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The use of occupational PEP (oPEP) for case management for persons with possible HIV exposures occurring in health care settings are not addressed in this guideline; updated oPEP guidelines have been published separately.
