The world missed the 2020 UNAIDS target of 3 million people accessing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Despite missing this target, PrEP uptake has increased 113% since 2019, largely due to efforts to differentiate, simplify, and demedicalize PrEP delivery. PrEP delivery has shifted from clinic-only models to mobile, pharmacy, and virtual ones that have led to increased uptake and effective use of PrEP. As new PrEP products come to market, including long-acting injectables, antiretroviral-containing vaginal rings, and the dual prevention pill, the world is poised for continued PrEP scale-up. However, there is a critical need to simplify delivery of these products in order to optimize their availability and acceptability to benefit all populations. This session will convene implementers, advocates, and researchers to share viewpoints on what can be done to differentiate access points and models to define a pathway for inclusive, client-responsive delivery of these new PrEP tools.
