nPEP (PEP) stands for non occupational post exposure prophylaxis, which means that medication is available for some people, in some situations, after sexual contact.
The nPEP project is being piloted by the BC-Centre for Excellence for 18 months.
It is supported by Pharmacare, which means if you qualify for nPEP your treatment is paid for. I think that is what they were referring to when they said the BC Medical (or MSP)
Generally, people who inject drugs, sex workers, and men who have sex with men qualify for nPEP.
