PleasePrEPMe Launches Updated PrEP Navigation Manual

PleasePrEPMe recently launched an updated version of the PrEP Navigation Manual, Helping People Access Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. The updated manual includes information on:

  • Screening for HIV infection
  • Transitioning from PEP to PrEP
  • 2-1-1 PrEP for anal sex

This manual provides in-depth information to frontline staff within California on the various aspects of supporting people who seek PrEP to get and maintain their prescriptions and related health care. The manual is meant to establish baseline knowledge for staff who are new to PrEP navigation and to fill in gaps in knowledge for others.

The three sections describe the following topic areas: PrEP research, PrEP care and PrEP navigation. The manual is framed within the context of health care programs unique to the state of California, although much of the content can be used by other states as well. The updated manual is available in both English and Spanish.
