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 on-demand webinar features 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 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.
