Empowering Black Women: Breaking Barriers to PrEP Across the Lifespan

October 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV, yet PrEP use among Black women is very low. Barriers include lack of awareness, negative experiences with providers, lack of confidence that providers know about PrEP, daily uptake, and negative response from partners.

Join Alive! Maryland, led by HealthHIV, on Thursday, October 5, 2023 at 12:00pm Eastern for a webinar that will highlight HIV prevention among Black women at each stage of life, including strategies for engagement and barriers to care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the history of HIV prevention and Black women.
  • Describe key strategies for engaging Black women in HIV prevention at each stage of the lifespan.
  • Identify barriers to PrEP for Black women at each stage of the lifespan.
  • Discuss the impact of culture and medical mistrust on healthcare decisions for Black women.

Continuing education credits are available for this webinar, pending accreditation.
