15.014 Preexposure Prophylaxis as HIV Prevention


15.014 Preexposure Prophylaxis as HIV Prevention: The Texas Medical Association will promote awareness among physicians on preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as a tool for HIV infection prevention. Efforts will include: (1) informing physicians about trends in HIV infection, PrEP as prevention, PrEP research and guidelines, PrEP clinical program structure, and access issues; (2) identifying resources and referral locations regarding HIV infection prevention for physicians who treat adult and adolescent patients; and (3) working with the Texas Department of State Health Services and other stakeholders to identify opportunities to promote PrEP and reduce barriers to access, including legal and confidentiality barriers that may affect younger patients (CM-ID & CM-CAH Rep. 5-A-17).
