Recognizing and Leveraging Your Current Resources: You can provide PrEP!

With PrEP taking center stage, community-based organizations (CBOs) and healthcare providers are trying to figure out their place. There are numerous uncertainties in this new landscape. CBOs not linked to clinics are left wondering what their role should be and healthcare providers are contemplating how to support and deliver PrEP services in their current settings. We offer this piece of advice: Don’t overthink it! If you successfully deliver education and/or medical care, you are almost there. Though having a PrEP navigator is ideal; you don’t have to be a PrEP navigator to navigate.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the 3 core components of PrEP implementation [Pr]oviders, [E]ducation at the community level, and [P]harmacy.
  • Explore how organizations can adapt and leverage their existing infrastructure and resources to provide PrEP services.
  • Describe the grassroots and institutional resources and systems that are available to help support the integration of PrEP.
