About the event

An HIV/PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis)presentation geared toward health providers who treat and/or are prescribing PrEP. 

SO Health-E's equity goal is to increase awareness and thus the  number of providers willing to treat and prescribe PrEP (Pre-exposure  prophylaxis) especially to those individuals who are considered high  risk for HIV and ideally they would  take daily medicine to prevent HIV.

Studies  have shown that PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about  99% when taken daily. Among people who inject drugs, PrEP reduces the  risk of getting HIV by at least 74% when taken daily. - Center for  Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
