Here in kenya, post pep guidelines recommend hiv testing at 4 weeks and again at 3 months after exposure, so a rapid point of care finger prick test 2 months after pep is considered conclusive, according to you, is that right considering some guidelines recommend HIV testing up to 6 months after pep?

Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver, all the way from Kenya! I'm happy to answer your questions.

Here at AIDS Vancouver, we follow the guidelines set out by the British Columbia Centre of Disease Control (BC CDC). These guidelines state that results are considered to be conclusive at 84 days (3 months or 12 weeks) for all types of testing.

*For post-PEP guidelines: the results are also considered conclusive three months post treatment*.

Please keep in mind that guidelines vary between countries, so it might be important for you to consult your local healthcare provider to ask about guidelines in Kenya.

If you have anymore questions, please do not hesitate to ask. For more information, please visit our website at

All the best,

Leila
