Webinar Recording: PrEP Clinical Guidelines 2021 - What Health Departments Should Know

Feb 02, 2022 | Julia Zigman

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.

For more information on the updates included in the CDC’s 2021 PrEP Clinical Guidelines, please visit CDC’s website here. To access more detailed data on LHD engagement in PrEP implementation, access conference slides from the 2021 NACCHO360 presentation “Assessing the Impact of COVID-19 Response on Local Health Department HIV PrEP Implementation Activities.”
