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).
