We now offer Telehealth giving you the option to virtually see your physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner via a confidential and secure videoconferencing.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is when people at risk for HIV take medication to prevent getting infected HIV. PrEP is effective at preventing HIV from sex and injection drug use. PIHC offers PrEP services at no cost in the Decatur and Duluth Centers
Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is when those potentially exposed to HIV take medications to prevent becoming infected. PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours of a possible exposure to HIV. PIHC offers PEP to those who think they were recently exposed to HIV during sex or through sharing needles and works to prepare drug, or sexually assaulted.
