HIV Public Health Official's Blog

This page is for HIV public health officials who make strategic decisions about who will be offered PrEP, where PrEP should be offered, and how PrEP can be integrated with other services. In planning for PrEP implementation at the country level, HIV public health officials have to consider how to offer PrEP in the most cost-effective way, that maximizes benefits to individuals and the public health while minimizing costs. In this section, we consider decision-making practices to prioritize people who will benefit most from PrEP, including how to operationalize the concept of substantial HIV risk.  These tools are designed for public health use.  Approaches for use in clinics are found in the chapter for clinicians.
