Black PrEP Summit

On September 9, 2015, the Black AIDS Institute hosted the 2015 National Black PrEP Summit. The National Black PrEP Summit served as a call to action to identify best practices for PrEP uptake in Black communities and develop implementation strategies with participation from policymakers, local leaders, researchers and experts.

Program Mission

The goal of the Black Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Summit was to increase knowledge and uptake of PrEP among Black people in the United States through interactive conversations with clinicians, community members, and public health practitioners. The summit aimed to discuss socio-contextual, economic and political issues associated with PrEP uptake, and share best practices in surmounting these challenges.
