At ICASA 2017, held 4-9 December in Cote d’Ivoire, OPTIONS and WHO co-hosted a satellite session, titled “Making the case for PrEP for women: What we know and experiences to date.” More than 200 people attended the session, which reviewed current and new evidence about delivering oral PrEP to women, particularly adolescent girls and young women. Some questions explored were:
- How can we accelerate PrEP access and uptake for high-risk young women?
- What can we learn from the challenges and approaches taken in the Kenya and South Africa oral PrEP rollouts and DREAMS?
- Can women be reached through the private sector?
