Providing PrEP in the South: Fulton County’s PrEP Clinic

Video

©2016.

The first in our series of video stories featuring the work of health departments across the country in high-impact HIV prevention, this story looks at Fulton County in Georgia, and their efforts to start a PrEP clinic. Fulton County became one of the first public health departments in the South to open a PrEP clinic that can provide PrEP to uninsured and underinsured patients in Atlanta, GA. PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a medication that is highly effective at preventing HIV when taken daily. Access to PrEP is critical in the South, where HIV rates are the highest in the country. San Francisco Department of Public Health’s Capacity Building Assistance Program worked with Fulton County staff to get this PrEP clinic off the ground. Take a look to see what Fulton is doing and why it’s so important in the fight against HIV.
