What is the program?

The HIV Prevention Clinic is a comprehensive, inter-professional HIV prevention service housed in the Immunodeficiency Clinic at the Toronto General Hospital (TGH) in Toronto, Ontario. The Immunodeficiency Clinic specializes in HIV care and hosts the HIV Prevention Clinic.  

This clinic provides:

  • occupational and non-occupational post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to people who have been exposed to HIV
  • pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to people who are at ongoing high-risk for HIV acquisition
  • ongoing mental health support and counselling, and linkage to other community resources, for those who visit the clinic to access PEP or PrEP
  • care for individuals not on PrEP, but considering PrEP to help them remain HIV negative
  • support for direct transition into HIV care for those who test HIV positive

The HIV Prevention Clinic provides services to people at high risk for HIV, regardless of age, race, sex, or HIV risk activities.
