LOS ANGELES — Despite large increases in PrEP use across California, a new study funded by the California HIV/AIDS Research Program finds sharp differences in uptake by age, gender, race/ethnicity and geographic region. In this first look at PrEP prescription data among beneficiaries of California’s Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, researchers we are able to document that from 2012 through 2016, PrEP uptake was lower among Blacks, Hispanics, women, and people between the ages of 13-24. Disparities were also identified with regard to geographic region. Uptake was highest in San Francisco County, followed by San Diego and Los Angeles Counties.
