Notice to Readers Opening of Nonoccupational HIV Postexposure Prophylaxis Registry

Effective June 7, 1999, the National Nonoccupational HIV Postexposure Prophylaxis (PEP) Registry opened for enrollment. The registry was established as a prospective surveillance project to monitor isolated episodes of potential HIV exposures through sexual activity, injecting-drug use, and other nonoccupational events. Receipt of antiretroviral PEP is not an eligibility requirement for enrollment in the registry. Registration and data collection are available through telephone, fax, postal mail, and a World-Wide Web site.

Information is being confidentially collected about the type of exposure, the decision to use or not use PEP, drugs taken, risk-reduction referrals made, and results of HIV-antibody tests. No names or other identifying information about patients will be collected. Information will be reported nationally and used in collaboration with data in the registries of other nations to monitor the use of PEP for nonoccupational HIV exposures and its clinical outcomes. Providers will receive a small reimbursement for the time spent reporting.

Additional information about the registry is available from the Nonoccupational HIV PEP Registry, telephone (toll-free 24 hours) (877) 448-1737 or the World-Wide Web,*
