Six innovative models for PrEP services

Roger Pebody

For pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to have a substantial public health impact, access to PrEP needs to be improved so that more people who would benefit from it receive PrEP. Services need to adapt and innovate. A series of recent articles, most of them published in a special issue of Sexual Health, outline a range of promising approaches.

  1. Nurse-led services
  2. Providing PrEP in community pharmacies
  3. Digital health services
  4. Digital mentoring for local PrEP providers
  5. Key population-led services
  6. Holistic services for transgender women
