Taking pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to scale as part of combination HIV prevention is critical to combat new infections and achieve the goals of ending HIV transmission. Between 2019 and 2022, PrEP coverage rose from 233,000 to 2.6 million people, however this expansion was driven by a small number of countries. To meet ambitious global goals of 10 million people on PrEP by 2025, global adoption of models that simplify, normalize and diversify PrEP are needed to promote equitable access among all those who may benefit from it. This session will spotlight diverse real-world PrEP service delivery models from a variety of contexts and for different populations that showcase examples of the innovative, out-of-the-box thinking needed to accelerate PrEP scale-up. This will be followed by a panel discussion with leading experts on accelerating PrEP scale up, sustainability of PrEP programming and the implications of new PrEP products and approaches.
