The CBRC will be hosting a free webinar on PrEP: What Is It? What Does It Mean for BC's Indigenous People?
Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is one way to help prevent HIV. Prophylaxis simply means disease prevention. In this approach, people who do not have HIV take one pill once a day to prevent them from acquiring HIV if they are exposed; for example, if a condom breaks while having sex, or has sex without a condom, or shares a needle with someone who has HIV. First Nations and Inuit People of BC are the first to have access to publicly-funded PrEP, yet so few people know what is PrEP, who is PrEP for, and basic information on PrEP access and coverage. This interactive workshop will provide PrEP basics and then create a safe space for a community-based conversation on another tool in our HIV prevention toolkit.
Facilitator: Pruden, Harlan
