VIDEO: BPHC CoP- PrEP and Minority Populations (03/10/2022)
The goal of this MidAtlantic AIDS Education and Training Center (MAAETC) project is to create a Prevention Community of
Practice (P-CoP) focused on increasing HIV testing and use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) knowledge and readiness to prescribe in Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). As a result, increased numbers of health professionals at FQHCs will be able to competently deploy evidence-based prevention strategies, including PrEP, that focus on people who are at risk for HIV. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) supports this initiative to partner with Ending the HIV Epidemic-funded FQHCs in the MAAETC region to increase the numbers of health professionals prepared to provide PrEP, including improving access to care and patient outcomes.
Learning Objectives: After this activity, participants should be able to:
1. Describe disparities in HIV infection and PrEP use in minority populations.
2. Identify opportunities to increase PrEP knowledge and use in minority populations.
Target Audience: Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and others medical team members involved in supporting patients prescribed PrEP
