WHO implementation tool for pre-exposure prophylaxis of HIV infection


Following the WHO recommendation in September 2015 that “oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) should be offered as an additional prevention choice for people at substantial risk of HIV infection as part of combination HIV prevention approaches”, partners in countries expressed the need for practical advice on how to consider the introduction of PrEP and start implementation.

In response, WHO has developed this series of modules to support the implementation of PrEP among a range of populations in different settings.
