Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, has long been recognized as an effective treatment in the effort to end the HIV epidemic. A substantial number of individuals for whom PrEP would be recommended have limited geographic access to care, and HIV stigma is a persistent barrier to seeking and receiving preventive care.
While access to PrEP presents many unique challenges for health center populations, approaches and innovations in telehealth may allow health centers to address barriers faced by vulnerable populations in accessing HIV care, particularly in underserved areas. In partnership with the HITEQ Center, this learning session presents an overview of the telePrEP model, including its benefits, barriers, and considerations for getting started.
To learn more, review the HITEQ brief “TelePrEP for Health Centers” and join us for the May 10 session!
Attendees will be able to:
Explain one or more benefit(s) of offering telePrEP
Articulate one or more component(s) of the PrEP Care Continuum that is well suited to telehealth
Discuss one or more potential barrier(s) to telePrEP that may be experienced, and how the barrier(s) may be overcome.
