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.

Target Audience: HIV care providers, primary care providers, and general practitioners (MD/DO, NP, PA), as well as other HIV prevention workforce professionals (nurses, pharmacists, social workers, case managers, certified health educators and community health workers), and patients/consumers
