Opportunities and Strategies to Optimize PrEP Uptake in Key Communities

March 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

PrEP continues to be underused by people who could benefit from it, especially those affected by health disparities. Of the 1.2 million people in the U.S. who can benefit from taking PrEP, only about 23% have used PrEP. Data on PrEP coverage shows that racial/ethnic minorities, sexual minorities, youth, and women access PrEP at even lower rates.
This interactive live webinar will feature the perspectives of multiple diverse HIV prevention experts on PrEP uptake among relevant consumer/patient communities, including Black women, same-gender-loving (SGL) Black and Latino men, and transgender individuals. Presenters will consider both challenges and opportunities for PrEP use among these communities, specific access issues, and strategies and model practices for providers and healthcare teams to address barriers and fully engage clients.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • Identify clinical data on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV to inform culturally competent educational and counseling strategies for improving the uptake of PrEP in vulnerable populations.
  • Describe strategies for facilitating access to PrEP among Black women, Black/Latino same-gender loving men, and transgender men and women.
  • Explain how PrEP use functions as part of a broader strategy to reduce disparities in HIV incidence in Black women, Black/Latino same-gender loving men, and transgender men and women.
