COVID-19, Sexual Health
Although the entire country has been affected by COVID-19, the southern United States has especially felt its impact, with southern states currently making up about a third of new cases. Southern leaders in HIV prevention are working tirelessly to not only ensure that Ending the HIV Epidemic objectives are met, but also innovate new methods of delivering HIV prevention services during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. This webinar will discuss how southern jurisdictions are dealing with the impact of COVID-19 on sexual health and HIV prevention tools such as PrEP/PEP.
