December Vital Signs Town Hall Teleconference Today: Daily Pill Can Prevent HIV: Reaching People Who Could Benefit from PrEP
Preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a medicine taken daily that can be used to prevent getting HIV. PrEP is for people without HIV who are at very high risk for getting it from sex or injection drug use. Many people who can benefit from PrEP aren't taking it. In 2015, 1 in 3 primary care doctors and nurses had never heard of PrEP. If more healthcare providers know about and prescribe PrEP, more HIV infections could be prevented. The latest CDC Vital Signs presents information about increasing PrEP use. Join today’s Vital Signs Town Hall Teleconference, “Daily Pill Can Prevent HIV: Reaching People Who Could Benefit from PrEP,” at 2:00 pm (EST) to find out more.
