What is the new Ready, Set, PrEP program and how does it work? How does it fit into the federal plan to end the HIV epidemic in the United States? And how can you help implement it in your community?
You can learn the answers to these questions—and many more—by participating in a webinar on Ready, Set, PrEP on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. (ET).
Harold Phillips, Senior HIV Advisor for the Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy (OIDP) and Chief Operating Officer for the Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE) initiative, will facilitate the webinar, which will feature Dr. Tammy Beckham, Director of OIDP, and representatives from the federal agencies supporting the program.
Registration is required and participation is limited to the first 2,000 registrants. You can register here.
Who Should Register?
Everyone is welcome, but the following individuals may find the webinar particularly helpful for their work:
Federal staff whose agencies/programs/offices are engaged in implementing EHE.
Funded recipients, subrecipients, and healthcare workers who currently provide PrEP or who are interested in potentially adopting PrEP as part of their HIV-prevention strategy.
- Public health and healthcare service providers, including staff from local health departments, community-based organizations, sexually transmitted infection clinics, community health centers, Title X clinics, and substance-use-disorder treatment providers who want to learn more about the new PrEP program.
After this webinar, participants will be better able to:
Describe the Ready, Set, PrEP program, including who qualifies, how to enroll, and how it fits into EHE.
Understand the different and evolving models for PrEP services and implementation.
Incorporate strategies to support client decision-making about PrEP.
