Let's Talk About PrEP
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) are potential game changers in efforts to reduce the prevalence of HIV across the globe.  But uptake continues to be lackluster, especially in traditionally underserved populations.  Bruce and clinical HIV Pharmacist™ Dr. Carly Floyd discuss how PrEP has evolved over the last decade in clinical use for HIV prevention and share strategies for increasing PrEP and PEP access and uptake to populations that have not yet been adequately reached.PrEP is available in both oral and injectable formulations and, when taken routinely can prevent the transmission of HIV, whether through blood, sexual exposure, or injection. PrEP and PEP are key pillars in the U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy to end the HIV epidemic.About Dr. Floyd:Dr. Floyd is a clinical pharmacist at Southwest Care Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico and clinical director of the University of New Mexico’s AIDS Education and Training Center.Resources:HIV Risk Transmission ChartOral PrEP Coverage OptionsIf large copay: (however, ACA implementation part 47 should = $0)Copay cards for oral PrEP (Med D excluded): PrEP savings and assistance: Advocate Foundation (also for Med D): Days (also for people with Med D): uninsured:Oral PrEP Assistance Program:  1-800-226-2056 PrEP Assistance Program: 1-844-588-3288State PrEP Assistance Programs: Set PrEP (oral PrEP only at this point): ******** Questions about this topic?
