TelePrEP programs are particularly well-poised to scale up PrEP access, meet goals to end the HIV epidemic (EHE), and support PrEP maintenance while adhering to current public health recommendations for physical distancing.
NASTAD’s TelePrEP Learning Collaborative
In October 2020, NASTAD launched the TelePrEP Learning Collaborative with the goal of participating programs launching operational telePrEP programs by December 2021. NASTAD’s utilizing a virtual learning community format to assist select Phase 1 EHE jurisdictions implement a telePrEP program. Participants receive ongoing technical assistance (TA) from peers and subject matter experts to increase the uptake of telePrEP programs. NASTAD is supporting the learning collaborative with funding from CDC PS19-1906 Component A.
Cohort 1 of the learning collaborative took place between October 2020-March 2021, cohort 2 took place between April and October 2021.
