The Prevention Community of Practice (CoP) provides an opportunity for Federally Qualified Community Health Centers (FHQCs) in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, DC to learn from each other regarding increasing HIV testing, diagnosis, and prevention, including the provision of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Care and HIV/AIDS Bureau are supporting this initiative to partner with Ending the HIV Epidemic-funded FQHCs in the MAAETC region.
