    Joint WHO/ILO guidelines on post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to prevent HIV infection

    01 January 2007

Other non-occupational exposure situations for which PEP may be appropriate and is currently provided in some countries include injecting drug use and exposure through consensual sex. Subsequent sections have been developed to provide specific guidance for such types of exposure and for selected population groups (such as children). The content of these guidelines includes the general development of PEP policies and strategies for implementing programmes, the overall management of HIV PEP in general terms, specific policy development and clinical management of occupational exposure and exposure from sexual assault.
