Special Edition of American Journal of Preventative Medicine Focuses on PrEP

December 19, 2012

The American Journal of Preventative Medicine released a special supplemental issue this week titled, "Implementing Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) in the U.S.: Moving From Evidence to Practice." CDC's Dr. Dawn Smith served as a senior editor on this commissioned issue of AJPM.

Articles in the issue address PrEP implementation, lessons learned from dissemination and implementation of other health interventions, policy issues surrounding PrEP implementation and gaining practice-based evidence about PrEP use in the United States. PrEP has been tested in clinical trials settings and found to be efficacious when used consistently for men who have sex with men and heterosexual men and women at high risk for HIV. Obtaining early practice-based evidence is critical to inform the next stages of PrEP dissemination, implementation and evaluation and define its role in an integrated set of biomedical, behavioral and structural HIV prevention programs.
