Dear colleague:


PrEP uptake is slowly moving forward around the globe. In some cases it is being implemented as part of a governmental decision, while in others, It is the initiative of potential users and their communities, as well as ​of ​champions among health providers, ​what play​s​ a ​key ​role. This seems to be the case in Spain, where, as in other European countries, cost issues represent a barrier at this time, but new opportunities may be emerging​.​

In our upcoming webinar, scheduled for Thursday 25 May at 9h (Mexico City, Panama City, Lima)​ 10h ​(New​ York), 11h (Brasilia). 16h (Barcelona). We will have Dr. Pep Coll and Mr. Michael Meulbroek presenting medical and community perspectives​, respectively,​ on:

Access to PrEP in Spain: Challenges and Ongoing Efforts


We are sure at the case of Spain will help identify and start the discussion on issues that may be relevant to other realities.
