PrEP for Adolescents
We already know that PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV, using the drug Truvada®) can be highly effective in preventing HIV infection in adults at increased risk. But what about for adolescents? Does it work? Is it Safe? Is it affordable? Is anyone providing PrEP to adolescents, and if so, how? We’ll explore these questions and more during this webinar.
By the end of this webinar, participants will:
- Be familiar with the clinical science behind PrEP
- Understand the data on PrEP and adolescents, particularly focusing on adherence and safety
- Understand the ins and outs of PrEP and parental consent, and paying for PrEP with and without parental involvement
- Hear about the innovative ways in which PrEP is being delivered to adolescents
Please be sure to complete this HPAT. We will end with a Question & Answer session along with an overview of how your health department can get free assistance on building capacity in high impact HIV prevention. We encourage everyone to follow along and ask questions on Twitter using the hashtag #PrEPTalkSF.
