About this talk

We are delighted to be sharing results from our wide ranging evaluation of Scotland’s national PrEP programme, which was funded by the Scottish Chief Scientist Office.

Our evaluation aimed to explore key stakeholder’s views on and experiences of PrEP roll-out to understand what worked well and what worked less well and why and to develop recommendations to optimise PrEP services in the future.

Over the last two years, we have interviewed 117 participants, including health care professionals involved in PrEP delivery (n=54); staff from community-based organisations (n=15); community-based organisation service users (n=9); and people who had attended a sexual health clinic, with varying PrEP statuses (n=39).

We would love for you to join us in this session when our panel will be discussing our key findings and future directions to improve PrEP initiation, retention, and adherence in Scotland and beyond.

The session will be of interest to policymakers, public health professionals, clinical and community staff, academics, and potential and PrEP users.
