who are in need of PEP. However, according to Rice: “It’s still a complicated process – and most of these cases don’t happen between the hours of 9 and 5pm”.

PEP Angels continues to operate its 24/7 local hotline.

About PEP Angels:

The mission of PEP Angels is to arrest the spread of HIV in Kansas City. Started in 2013 by tech entrepreneur Matt Rice, PEP Angels operates a 24/7 hotline that provides free access to the newest findings on HIV prevention. It started providing at-cost exams delivered anywhere in Kansas City, anytime of the day or night for $15 dollars. Pharmacies charge $40 dollars for the same exam.

PEP Angels allows anyone who wants to be an HIV volunteer to receive text/email alerts when someone needs an HIV exam delivered – regardless of what time of day it is. The first tester to respond to the alert delivers an HIV exam to both parties allowing them to decide if PEP is warranted.

To be a delivery person for PEP Angels, sign up as a counselor to receive Red Alerts at http://www.pepangels.org. The only requirement is that you keep a copy of the newly released HIV prevention guidelines from the New York State Department of Health.
