HIV-Prevention Education for University Student Health Centers

Program description

Welcome to PrEP U™ 2019: HIV-Prevention Education for University Health Centers! This is a comprehensive professional and lay-leadership training program to help you meet the health needs of your university community.

Topics to be covered include HIV epidemiology and risk, overcoming stigma and social barriers, screening and preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and strategies and resources for implementing an educational and awareness campaign to prevent HIV infection and increase the use of PrEP on your campus.
