Prevention orgs issue call to action
by Bob Roehr
Leading HIV prevention organizations have issued a call to action for the Department of Health and Human Services to develop a comprehensive plan of PrEP demonstration projects that identify how and where the intervention might best be used.
Initial groups behind the effort are the San Francisco AIDS Foundation; Project Inform; AIDS Foundation of Chicago; AIDS United; amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research; AVAC: Global Advocacy for HIV Prevention; the Black AIDS Institute; the International Rectal Microbicide Advocates; National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors; and the National Minority AIDS Council.
The recommendations focus on public health administration of PrEP programs and largely avoid the role that health insurance and private purchase of PrEP might play.
