PrEP for women in Europe webinar

By | June 11, 2021

On Tuesday 22 June at 2pm (UK time), PrEP in Europe is holding the first part of its webinar on PrEP for women in Europe. The second part will be on Tuesday 13 July.

The webinar will include presentations by:

  • Dr Sylvain Chawki, infectious disease physician and researcher in Paris. Sylvain will centre his talk around the latest data on drug levels, dosing and the likely efficacy of injected and oral PrEP in cis and trans women.
  • Dr Ana Silva-Klug, STI clinician and PrEP programme co-ordinator at the University Hospital of Bellvitge in Barcelona. Ana will talk about working with patients to secure PrEP in Spain, a country whose guidelines only specify PrEP for women if they are sex workers.
  • Irene Ogeta, Associate Program Officer at ATHENA Network, Nairobi. Irene has been a community educator and PrEP advocate among adolescent girls and young women in Kenya for several years. She will talk about the knowledge and acceptability of PrEP there and how her project’s findings have influenced government policy.
