Mapping Pathways is a multi-national project to develop and nurture a research-driven, community-led global understanding of the emerging evidence base around the adoption of antiretroviral-based prevention strategies to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The evidence base is more than results from clinical trials - it must include stakeholder and community perspectives as well.

Mapping Pathways Community Perspectives on PrEP Webinar

Original content from the Mapping Pathways blog team

In response to recent news from the FDA regarding the use of the drug Truvada for prevention, Mapping Pathways U.S. partners AIDS United and AIDS Foundation of Chicago presented a webinar June 19 focusing on the ARV-based strategy PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis.)

During the webinar, key findings from the Mapping Pathways online survey and stakeholder interviews were presented to help illuminate the wide-ranging perspectives of advocates, clinicians, people living with HIV, policy makers and others regarding PrEP. While the U.S. context was highlighted, comparisons/contrasts were drawn with the opinions of individuals in South Africa and India.

Below are the slides from that webinar.
