For Us, By Us: PrEP In Black America: A Master Plan For HIV Prevention In Black America
In the spirit of seeking change to ameliorate the devastating impact of HIV in Black communities through biomedical HIV prevention, Black leaders convened the “PrEP in Black America (PIBA) Summit” virtually and in person on September 13, 2022, in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Offices of ThriveSS, a community-based organization and PIBA partner, dedicated to achieving health equity for Black same gender loving men.
On the heels of the 10th anniversary of the approval of the first biomedical HIV prevention strategy by the United States Food and Drug Administration, in partnership with local communities, stakeholders, advocates, and policy makers, the PIBA Summit aimed to:
- Identify factors that contribute to the systematic underutilization of biomedical HIV
prevention strategies among Black communities, and
- Develop a Black people centered framework or “roadmap” for PrEP in Black communities.
PrEP in Black America continues a legacy of “For Us By Us” social and political activism in Black communities to fight for equity.
