HIV/AIDS Community Information Outreach Program (ACIOP): PleasePrEPMe

PleasePrEPMe was thrilled to launch our updated PrEP navigation course on August 24, 2020, with new details on Truvada and Descovy PrEP and changes to patient assistance programs, such as the new federal Ready, Set, PrEP program.

This update of “Helping People Access PrEP” also includes timely resources to support navigators and frontline staff with their own mental health and self care, especially for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color who may be experiencing vicarious trauma. We’ve added new tools to help address unconscious bias and other antiracism resources, as well.  

Within the first month after the updated course launched, a whopping 287 people had enrolled in the course. We are gratified and humbled by the positive feedback we’ve received:

  • “It was fantastic! I loved the knowledge, energy, demonstrated caring, and expertise  of each of the presenters. Great vibes all around. :)”
  • “I loved the gender-inclusive language and how many folks of color were represented.”
  • “I admire that a module on self-care tips was included! I feel like many related working environments see burned out employees due to vicarious trauma…”
  • “The self care module was very informative.”

We know PrEP navigation doesn’t happen in a vacuum. We hope this updated training equips navigators with current PrEP info and helps empower staff to give themselves and their clients the best possible care.
