ABSTRACT: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is spreading in the community rapidly in India. Health care workers (HCW0 are an important group of individuals who are at risk as an occupational hazard. The risk will be reduced on following universal precautions while handling HIV infected patients or material. Inspite of precautions, percutaneous injuries or mucosal splashes with infected blood or body fluids could still happen. Hence, it is necessary to be aware of post exposure prohylaxis (PEP) options and recommendations. The appropriate usage of antiretroviral drugs is best achieved by using guidelines based on the exposure code (EC) and HIV status code (HIV SC).
