New Video Series: Lessons from the field on oral PrEP introduction

December 5, 2017

AVAC is pleased to share a new series of videos on the introduction of daily oral PrEP in Kenya—Lessons from the Field. The series features lessons on how to fit this newer prevention option into the lives of people who need it through case studies of issues related to supporting Kenyan women who choose to take daily oral PrEP.

Check out the videos here.

A collaboration with LVCT Health in Kenya and AVAC, through the USAID-funded OPTIONS Consortium, this series was filmed at several sites in Kenya where LVCT Health offers oral PrEP to populations at risk of HIV. Each film highlights a different theme or challenge that emerged as PrEP rolled out, and tells the story of how the project responded:

In these videos, women enrolled in LVCT’s oral PrEP project share their experiences and program staff describe tactics they developed to address these issues, such as hotlines, enhanced counseling and support, and engagement with the community.

This series is intended for PrEP stakeholders, including program implementers, policy makers, civil society, advocates and people considering PrEP in Kenya and other countries. Taken together, the full series will increase understanding of specific barriers to delivering oral PrEP and show successful strategies to help people start oral PrEP and use it correctly and consistently.
