“Telemedicine for PrEP Throughout Mississippi”
This study will develop and test a program to deliver PrEP care in underserved communities in Mississippi (MS) through telemedicine, distance-based, clinical care delivered in local community based organizations (CBOs). The intervention will be developed in collaboration with medical specialists at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) and local CBO stakeholders (providers, administrators and patients). Approximately 300 individuals will be recruited from CBOs in MS. Participants will be able to receive PrEP counseling in the CBO and PrEP care via telemedicine from a PrEP specialist at UMMC. Participants will complete four assessments in the six months after enrolling. Our study will provide a wealth of information about PrEP-related outcomes and HIV testing among MS residents living in underserved communities. If successful, this program will be able to be disseminated to other CBOs in the South.
