PrEP: Going virtual with PrEP service delivery (May 28, 2020)
In this webinar, co-hosted by the PrEP Learning Network, we heard from FHI 360, PATH and the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre on how their projects in Thailand, Vietnam, Kenya and Eswatini are using virtual platforms to support PrEP and antiretroviral therapy delivery. These programs have had virtual and online elements established for some time, which are even more important now in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. We heard about how to support new and continued use of PrEP, carry out laboratory testing and provide remote case management through virtual technologies and innovative adaptations.
