PrEP Week 2023

Prep Week 2023 is a vibrant and inclusive event dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). This week-long gathering will bring together healthcare professionals, researchers, advocates, and community members to share knowledge, exchange ideas, and explore the latest advancements in PrEP.

Throughout Prep Week 2023, participants will have the opportunity to attend a diverse range of activities including informative presentations, engaging panel discussions, practical workshops, and networking events. Esteemed experts in the field will deliver thought-provoking talks on various topics, including the effectiveness of PrEP, strategies for improving access and uptake, innovative PrEP medications, and addressing barriers in marginalized communities.

Attendees will also be able to participate in interactive workshops that offer hands-on training in PrEP counseling, patient education, and adherence support. These workshops are designed to equip healthcare providers with practical skills and tools to effectively implement PrEP in their practices, while empowering individuals to make informed decisions about their sexual health.

We are especially excited about two standout events during Prep Week 2023. The Kickoff party, sponsored by Woody’s nightclub on September 16th, will provide a unique opportunity for community members to learn more about PrEP from those who provide PrEP services in non-traditional settings. Additionally, the PrEP Cocktail Reception following the GoPrEP Conference on September 19th will be held at the Central Free Library at 19th and Vine. These events will foster informative discussions, collaborations, and knowledge exchange among attendees, creating a supportive and innovative environment.

Moreover, the event will feature an exhibition area where pharmaceutical companies, healthcare organizations, and advocacy groups will showcase their products, services, and initiatives related to PrEP. This exhibition will offer a chance for attendees to explore the latest advancements in PrEP medications, diagnostics, and support services, while connecting with industry experts and representatives.

Prep Week 2023 aims not only to educate and inform but also to inspire action and collaboration. Through lively panel discussions and networking events, attendees will have the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations, share best practices, and form partnerships to overcome challenges in scaling up PrEP implementation and ensuring equitable access for all communities.

We invite you to join us at Prep Week 2023 and become part of this transformative event. By doing so, you will contribute to the global effort to end the HIV epidemic through the effective use of PrEP. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of individuals at risk of HIV and work towards a future where HIV transmission is eradicated.
