HIV & STI Prevention

HIV/AIDS is no longer a disease isolated to the gay community. Orange County was one of the earliest communities hit with the epidemic and the LGBTQ Center OC has never shied away from the battle lines. The LGBTQ Center OC’s professional and volunteer staff go above and beyond to continue the prevention efforts.

The LGBTQ Center OC continues to be an HIV Prevention leader in Orange County with Community Outreach efforts like:

Were you recently exposed to HIV?

If you have been exposed, or think you have been exposed to HIV, studies show there is a 72-hour window in which Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) can be effective in preventing HIV infection.

1) Contact an infectious disease doctor immediately or go to the nearest emergency room or urgent care.

2) Ask for the triage nurse if the office staff does not understand the urgency. Clearly state that you believe that you have been exposed to HIV.

3) If the physician determines that you are a candidate for PEP and you receive a prescription, seek a pharmacy that specializes in HIV treatment. Not all pharmacies stock the medication.

Are you curious about PrEP, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis?

You may think it is a free pass to have unprotected sex, but before you do, take a look at these resources.

The Centers for Disease control is the leading national authority on this treatment. Always consult a physician for the most accurate information. Learn more
