Case Studies in Training Activists, Advocates, and Community Leaders

Often lost in conversations about HIV prevention are the activists, advocates, and community leaders who do the important work of educating their peers, sharing their personal stories, and agitating for change. How do we leverage their influence to increase PrEP uptake in the United States? This session will highlight three programs that have found success training activists, advocates, and community leaders in the United States about PrEP. Each panelist will share lessons learned from their respective program, and workshop participants will have the opportunity to ask questions, as well as brainstorm how they might put into practice some of what they hear.
