Opportunities and Strategies to Optimize PrEP Uptake in Key Communities

Opportunities and Strategies to Optimize PrEP Uptake in Key Communities

Activity Description: PrEP continues to be underused by people who could benefit from it, especially those who face 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. The interactive live webinar will feature perspectives of multiple diverse HIV prevention experts on PrEP uptake among relevant consumer/patient communities, including Black women, same-gender-loving (SGL) Black and Latinx 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 the unique barriers.

Improving UDS Clinical Quality Measure Performance: Increasing HIV Prevention in Primary Care

Primary care plays a key role in ending the HIV epidemic. The Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative launched across HHS in 2019, setting forth four key strategies also called the “four pillars” of ending the HIV epidemic. Primary care in federally qualified health centers figures centrally into these efforts, evidenced by the addition of several HIV screening and prevention measures and metrics in the Uniform Data System (UDS) reporting. This webinar reviewed the outcomes of the first year of HIV Screening and Prevention reporting on the UDS, highlight opportunities for quality improvement, and discussed funding opportunities.

Youth and PrEP: Considerations for Prescribing PrEP in People 15–24 Years of Age

Overview: PrEP is an effective HIV prevention strategy for youth 15–24 years of age—a population that makes up one in five new HIV diagnoses in the U.S. Challenges related to medical, privacy, social, and economic factors can complicate providing PrEP care. This webinar will provide clinical, non-clinical, and personal considerations around improving access to PrEP in youth.  Presenters will focus on practical strategies for engaging younger adults, such as culturally competent clinical resources, covering PrEP costs, and ensuring confidentiality.

Target Audience: Primary and family providers with young patients, nurses, social workers, ASO/CBOs that serve youth, case managers, health educators, CHWs, as well as youth and parents of youth.

Educational Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize barriers to PrEP access among adolescents and young adults
  • Identify at least two strategies for increasing access to PrEP for young adults
  • Develop at least two strategies to maximize PrEP adherence
