“Project Jumpstart for Improving PrEP Care of Continuum Outcomes”
Stigma related to PrEP interest and uptake, and medication cognitions related to PrEP adherence and persistence remain strong barriers to improving PrEP use. To address these areas, the investigators are proposing to develop an intervention grounded in two novel cognitive/behavioral theories: the HIV Stigma Framework and the Medication Necessity-Concerns Framework. Advances in biomedical HIV prevention, such as the availability of PrEP, will only impact the HIV epidemic if concurrent efforts are made to address the social and behavioral challenges that are associated with achieving sufficient coverage of PrEP among individuals at elevated risk for HIV.
