NACCHO hosted a webinar on January 18 discussing recent updates to the CDC’s Clinical Guidelines for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention. Local health departments (LHDs) can use these guidelines to promote PrEP and educate providers in their communities.
Access the recording here to learn about the guidelines and the landscape of LHD engagement in PrEP prescribing, referrals, and promotion. The webinar features guest speaker Dawn Smith, MD, MS, MPH, who discussed the state of PrEP uptake in the U.S. and the development of the new clinical guidelines. Dr. Smith is the Biomedical Interventions Activity Lead at CDC’s Division of HIV Prevention.
