Increasing Knowledge & Awareness about HIV/AIDS and PrEP Utilizing a Comprehensive Women's Health Approach

Be-PrEpared aims to increase knowledge and awareness about HIV/AIDS, and the use of PrEP as a reliable prevention option, though a comprehensive women's health approach.

Be-PrEPared utilizes a multi-strategies approach to raise knowledge and awareness about HIV prevention and PrEP among cis and trans women of color. PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis and if taken properly, can reduce the risk of contracting HIV by more than 90%. PrEP is recommended for those at an increased risk for contracting HIV. Unfortunately, the use of PrEP as an efficacious prevention option has been slow for women of color. Be-PrEPared aims to integrate health education components related to HIV prevention into a comprehensive women’s health curriculum by addressing health disparities and health behaviors that place women of color at an increased risk for HIV transmission and other health issues.

Announcing the Launch of the Be-PrEPared e-Curriculum Learning Modules! Be-PrEPared offers a way to learn more about the pill to prevent HIV-infection among women of color through the use of an interactive online learning platform. The Healthy Woman and Outreach content modules are now available as a part of our pilot project. Learn more about the Be-PrEPared, the content modules, and how to receive a $20 gift card for completing the modules and evaluation survey at Be-PrEPared.org.
