About The PrEP Summit:
The goal of the PrEP Summit: A Skills Building Conference for Frontline Workers is to increase PrEP and PEP awareness and knowledge among frontline HIV prevention workers who serve high-risk populations such as MSM (including young MSM), transgender women, Black and Latino men and women in New York City. PrEP and PEP, in combination with interactive client-centered counseling, can be highly effective tools for HIV prevention. Attendees of the summit and workshops can expect to increase their understanding of PrEP and PEP use and current research and will learn to implement methods to integrate PrEP and PEP information into existing HIV testing and outreach programs.
