A.S.K.-PrEP: Assistance, Services, Knowledge - PrEP
What We Do: A.S.K.-PrEP works with HIV-negative trans women and men who have sex with men to link participants into PrEP medical services. A.S.K.-PrEP consists of individualized, client-centered PrEP navigation sessions to assess PrEP readiness, assess barriers to PrEP initiation and/or adherence, assess readiness for adherence, and to plan for PrEP persistence. Through the five-session A.S.K.-PrEP intervention, the PrEP navigator works with each participant to link them into needed ancillary services, all with the ultimate goal of linkage to PrEP and persistent daily PrEP adherence. Throughout the duration of the project, participants can opt-in/opt-out of receiving culturally competent, theory-based PrEP adherence support text messages. A.S.K.-PrEP partners with local medical providers to provide culturally appropriate PrEP medical services.
