Implementing PrEp in Family Planning Settings

Tuesday, September 21st 2021

2:00 PM

PAST EVENT

While women account for nearly 20% of new HIV infections, PrEP utilization by cisgender women continues to be exceedingly low. In 2018, our academic family planning practice, University of Pennsylvania Pregnancy Early Access Center (PEACE), initiated PrEP care for our patient population of primarily cisgender women seeking induced abortion, miscarriage management, and contraception. In this webinar, we will discuss our process of PrEP care implementation, our iterative changes to improve patient-centeredness of PrEP provision, PrEP navigation, and current practices.  Our panel will include PrEP care clinical champions and experts, and our prep navigator, who will discuss challenges and successes of both implementation and clinical care.
