Overview

PCPs are uniquely positioned to prevent HIV through promoting regular screening and access to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). In this module, you will learn about PrEP and PEP eligibility and screening guidelines. You will also be provided with the tools to identify stigma and structural barriers preventing access to PrEP and PEP in primary care settings. With this knowledge, you will be one step closer to destigmatizing and routinizing HIV screening for all patients in your clinical practice. 

You will hear from Executive Director, Stephen Lee MD, MBA, DHSM and Senior Program Advisor, Edwin Corbin-Gutierrez, MA of the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors.
