Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a cornerstone of HIV prevention. Ending the AIDS epidemic in NYS: The NYS Blueprint to End the AIDS Epidemic by 2020 presents recommended strategies from the Enging the Epidemic Task Force to achieve the first ever decrease in HIV prevalence and end the AIDS epidemic in New York State by the end of 2020.  Toward that end, the 3-point plan calls for: 
  • Identifying individuals with undiagnosed HIV
  • Linking and retaining them in care that includes fully suppressive antiretroviral therapy
  • Facilitating access to PrEP as a proven strategy to prevent HIV acquisition among individuals at high risk

Including access to PrEP as a pillar of this initiative emphasizes the safety and effectiveness of PrEP as a method to prevent HIV infection. The purpose of this guidelines is to provide clinicians throughout NYS with the recommendations needed to successfully start and continue patients on PrEP.
