NMAC’s New HIV PrEP Navigation Program

NMAC’s New HIV PrEP Navigation Program

NMAC is pleased to announce a new initiative that Links Communities of Color into Care through a HIV PrEP Navigation Program. Funded by the National Library of Medicine and Gilead, this program will improve recruitment, linkage, retention to care, and health outcomes for people of color who are at high-risk for HIV. It’s built upon the belief that persons trained as HIV PrEP navigators can be effective in reducing and eliminating barriers to timely prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of HIV in their own communities.
