Expanding PrEP Access for Immigrant Latino Men Who Have Sex With Men

HIV rates among Latino men who have sex with men are not decreasing at the same rate as they are decreasing among white MSM. This is a matter of concern as Latinx people are the largest racial/ethnic minority group affected by HIV in California. Currently, the California Department of Public Health in partnership with county health departments, community health centers, healthcare providers and non-profit service providers are collaborating to expand PrEP access throughout California to help curb HIV disease transmission. The state-funded payment assistance program for PrEP-related costs has been a key development in facilitating PrEP uptake. In this study, we sought to document existing barriers and facilitators to expanding PrEP access for immigrant Latino MSM in California, including un-/under-documented individuals.
