Event Link: Addressing Racial HIV Disparities Using Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Among Young Adults: Considerations for Practice
African Americans are disproportionately affected by HIV. Reducing HIV rates among African American young adults may produce the most meaningful impact in addressing the HIV epidemic in the US. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a medication regimen to reduce risk of HIV infection, is a promising HIV prevention strategy but its benefits have not been fully realized among African American young adults. This webinar focuses on barriers to PrEP access and uptake among this population and examines approaches to address these barriers. Considerations regarding PrEP during the COVID-19 pandemic will also be explored.
